I am passionate about my chosen field. I strongly believe that apart from ‘Caring’ and `Dedicated’ being two of the essential qualities for nurses, also experiencing pleasure from helping others is an added bonus. While nurses cannot cure patients in the way a doctor will, the quality of treatment that front line nurses offer provide a high level of support to the patients during their time in hospital.
At the end of the day, when my work is over, I choose to do exercises to release my stress, such as dancing, running, and swimming. In the meantime, I keep the habit of reading, which makes me never stop learning. Moreover, I love traveling during my holidays. Apart from this contributing towards enhancing my outlook on life, it increases my motivation to achieve goals. As a Chinese proverb goes, ‘it is better to travel ten thousand miles than to read ten thousand books’. Travel can broaden my horizon and helps towards answering and defining our purpose and the meaning of life.
