Just try and catch up with Destany.

The 22-year-old nursing major from Columbus, Ohio, carries a 3.3 grade point average and competes in Division I athletics in women's track & field while managing an off-campus job at a call center and working as an assistant high school hurdle track coach.

“There are a lot of times when I come back to my room after our 8 a.m. practices and I just want to fall asleep for the rest of the day,” Destany

Destany also works as a nurse assistant. In class, she really enjoys her developmental skills lab.

"In this class, you are taught how to perfom cetain procedures that you will do once you really go in to the hospital," she explains. "Not only do I actually enjoy doing it, but it also makes it easier for me to learn."
