An interview with Susan Laxa: Determined and Unwithered by Randy Laxa

Susan Laxa came to America as a focused, yet inexperienced 26-year-old that was ready to take on the world. Growing up Batangas City, Batangas, her family of 11 brothers and sisters has made becoming a nurse in America all the more important. There was not a doubt in her mind that she couldn't do what she set out to do; her resolve was and continues to be strong. Here, we look into the life of Susan past and present--her life in the Philippines, her life beginning in America, and her life now.
