Further Information: 

While growing up in London, I had no plan of joining the Healthcare field. It was only when I had a near-fatal parachuting accident in my late 20s, that I realised I wanted to become a Nurse. Whilst I was in hospital for 6 months, I saw the time and effort that the Nurses spent in looking after their Patients, and once I was back on my feet, I enrolled at my local college to start my Nursing career.

A few years later I graduated from University as a registered Adult Nurse and was lucky enough to get my first job in Critical Care, at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London. From my very first day, I loved being a Critical Care Nurse and have developed a strong passion for Critical Care Nursing and Medicine.

Since the beginning of 2020 I have been heavily involved in the frontline care of COVID-19 patients, and although it has been a challenging time, it has spurned me on to develop my knowledge and management of the critically unwell patient. In the future I hope to utilise this qualification to become an outreach Nurse.

Away from work I enjoy all water-based activities and have a newfound hobby of saving for my wedding in late 2021.

I am very grateful and honoured to receive this Scholarship and I look forward to putting my newfound knowledge to use within the Critical Care environment.
