ABOUT

1) My full name is Natasha Melissa Young. But I’m always called Tash or Tasha.
2) I’m originally from Guyana. No… I’m not from an island and my country is not in Africa. Actually located in South America, north of Brazil whom we share the Amazon Rainforest with and east of Venezuela. So technically, I’m American! LOL
3) Left Guyana at the age of 11 and moved to New Jersey.
4) Went to Undergraduate Nursing School in Boston which I think is one of  the best cities. If you haven’t visited, I strongly encourage you to do so!
5) After graduation, moved to Houston, TX to be with family and still here to this day. Will make 6 years this coming May. It simply amazes me how time goes by… however, missing the East Coast.
6) Full-time oncology RN at a world renowned hospital. Currently in my last year of Graduate School for Family Nurse Practitioner. Hopefully I can make it to the end. It’s tough working full-time, going to school full-time, and then there’s LIFE!

14) I’m allergic to Sulfa drugs and somewhat to pineapple which I believe was self-inflicted. You see when I was younger pineapples were my favorite fruit. I could easily eat an entire pineapple by myself. Now I can barely eat 2 slices because my tongue starts itching.
