Hey!!! Yes, that’s me hahahaha – interested in a lot of things. I think that’s the best attitude to have in life. That’s why I always search for new adventures, travels, and experiences.🤣
Why I stuck in paeds? There’s this quote in Grey’s Anatomy that really summarises my love for Paeds:
“These are tiny humans. These are children. They believe in magic. They play pretend. There is fairy dust in their IV bags. They hope and they cross their fingers and they make wishes. And that’s what makes them more resilient than adults. They recover fast, survive worse, they believe. In Paeds, we have miracles and magic. In Paeds, anything is possible.”
I have always had that innate skill to interact and cope with children – and I know this may sound weird, but I have always gotten along with kids naturally throughout my life. People think of Paeds as just toddlers, but Paeds start from when they were born and throughout their teenage life, and those years are the most crucial part of a human life. I believe it’s also because I know I’m making a huge impact in a child’s life, not only through saving their life, but also becoming a huge influence/role model for them. 👶🏻
That’s a fair point really. The most important thing is doing what’s best for you, and if you’ve got a specific interest and purpose, then you have to value it.
And of course, no worries! It’s been fun answering your questions, and hopefully others will do the same too.💙
