      Hello Haddy,

      From a young age I knew I wanted to care for people, but did not realise how many different caring roles there was in the big wide world. I also enjoyed science at school and was very intrigued by the human body and the way it worked.

      I established that nursing was a caring role which involved the human body (science) and people, I love to talk to anyone of any age and nursing is very much about communication too, both verbal and non verbal. I then set my future goal in becoming a nurse and aimed high in hope of achieving my dream which is also a vocation.
