THINGS ABOUT ME: -Growing up I was convinced i wanted to be a doctor. ( in healthcare field) seeing my dad, who is a nephrologist by trade, inspired me from a very young age (as young as 5 years old) -My fathers impact on his community that he worked in where everyone looked up to him as a pillar of strength. This inspired me to create and emulate those relationships within my own life and hopefully make them a reality with my future patients and the people who i will be taking care of in the future. – My father saw my curiosity and new found love for medicine that he bought me a green scrub to wear to act out being a healthcare professional just for fun. This solidified the medicine bond with me even more as I literally saw myself being a healthcare professional. – Years later, my parents married me off at a very young age which stalled my ambitions and goals of going into the medical field. – a year or so into the marriage, I became pregnant with my first child. It was during this time that reignited my deep love for medicine. Complications occurred and I had to give birth 1.5 months earlier than expected. – Unfortunately, this caused so much mental, emotional and physical trauma. The nurses there were so crucial at this time. They really helped me and my premature baby to get to a healthy state before sending us home. One nurse in particular, Katherine, was paramount in giving my new sense of joy in life. She became a mother figure during this time, a mentor, a life coach and someone who attended to my every need so I can sleep peacefully knowing everything would be ok. Little did i know, this would be forming healthy coping mechanisms that I want to apply to my future patients. – two years later, I found out that my child was on the spectrum having been diagnosed with autism. This proved to be yet another obstacle, one which I know could be overcome with the mechanisms I learned beforehand. While the future seemed more uncertain, the resilience that was being built through the pressures i had to overcome from not only being my sons mother but his teacher as well as his therapist. – It allowed me to overcome overwhelming situations by being able to put my right foot forward and keep pushing until i saw my son succeed in an activity. -It allowed me to build a tolerance to high demanding situations that required complete attention and patience. Everything was about doing things repetitively, structurally, carefully and with utmost care. -I believe this resembles the life of a nurse. No matter how many times youre doing something for your patient repeatedly throughout the days, its that moment of success that makes it all worth it. When you can see your patients walk away with better health knowing that you helped them get there.
