Megan Astadan Student Spotlight
Megan Astadan has always had a passion for helping others, with a special place in her heart set on taking care of those who needed her help the most. Inspired by her love for her grandmother, Megan quickly came to the realization that she was destined to pursue a career that allowed her to employ her warmth and benevolence in a way that benefited others in as many ways possible.
After moving to Santa Clarita in the summer of 2009, Megan shares that her experience here in SCV has been nothing but positive, and that making the move from LA to Santa Clarita was a big step in her family’s decision to provide a better life for Megan and her younger sister.
Megan came to understand how important it was to her to make a difference in the lives of others, and a key player in her decision to pursue a career in nursing is her grandmother, with whom she’s spent years growing and making memories with. She speaks of the impact her grandmother had on her, saying, “when my grandmother fell ill, I stepped in and felt like I had an important role to play in her care,” emphasizing her strong desire to direct her compassionate propensity towards helping someone very close to her.
“I think I’ve always known that I wanted to be a nurse,” Megan notes after being asked when she came to the decision that she wanted to pursue a career in healthcare. “My mom is a nurse, and seeing how much she and I were capable of helping my grandmother made me realize that I can do the same for others.”
Megan is currently studying pre-nursing at College of the Canyons, with the hopes of being accepted to a nursing program and gradually attain her Master’s in Nursing later down the line.
