What historic figure would you have dinner with and why?
I would love to have dinner with Florence Nightingale to discuss what her vision of nursing was and how if compares to the nursing culture currently.

Turkey dinner from the cafeteria

My 5th/6th grade teacher, Mrs. Belrose, she was always encouraging me to do the absolute best that I could. She was vibrant, fun and always laughing.
