WCN Stellar Student: Cristina Marie Nazario

Meet Cristina Marie Nazario, an ambitious and outstanding junior in the nursing program at Alverno College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Cristina, a Milwaukee native, was raised with supportive parents who valued the importance of education. “Growing up my parents taught my siblings and I the importance of going to college and having an education. But I never took them seriously until I had a child of my own.”  After Cristina had her daughter, she decided that going to college would be the best thing she could do for both of them.  Cristina’s daughter was the primary motivator to do well in school and become an exceptional role model for her. “I hope when she grows up, she can look back at all the hard work that she saw me go through and will be encouraged to do the same.”
