Little People Big Dreams: Florence Nightingale
As the daughter of an upper-class family, it was expected that Florence would find a husband and live a life of luxury - but her calling was caring for the sick and the poor. When war broke out in Crimea, Florence travelled to nurse wounded soldiers. There she found the hospitals were so dirty that they were making people ill. The changes she made began a healthcare revolution, and she became the mother of modern nursing. Many of her ideas are still in place today.
