Beside nursing practice, I also enjoy assisting people, to empower and enable them to achieve the highest potential they can. Hence, I volunteered with Night Ministry in Surrey BC to help prepare food for the homeless. I also fundraised for Heart and Stroke foundation. Prior to moving to Canada, I volunteered in orphan homes to assist with general day-to-day care activities. I am keen in professional development; this is to ensure that I keep up with the ever-changing practices in nursing. This is why I enjoy attending various nursing conferences and integrating what I learn into my practice for safe and quality nursing care.
