"Our nation is flooded with issues and problems. I strongly believe in facing and solving these problems rather than cursing the entire system for not being what we expect it to be. To make something possible, we need to have faith in people and, most important. in ourselves. I like challenges. I plan on fighting for justice."

Nursing (2019)

"When I think about all the patients and their loved ones that I will work with, I know most of them won’t remember me nor I them, but I do know that I gave a little piece of myself to each of them and they to me and those threads make up the beautiful tapestry in my mind, that is my career in Nursing. To do what nobody else will do, in a way that nobody else can, in spite of all we go through is to be a nurse. BMKF provide me a scholarship which is so valuable and much needed to fully concentrate on my study."
