What are you most passionate about?
I am definitely most passionate about spending time with family and embracing the special time I get to spend with loved ones. I strongly believe that you should enjoy every moment you get to spend with your family, as you never know what might happen!
I also love to travel and I have been lucky enough to have had the opportunity to travel overseas quite a few times! I enjoy taking in the scenery and learning about different cultures and lifestyles!
Why did you decide to work in the health industry?
Since about the age of 10 I have always told my family that I want to become a doctor. I have not yet given up on that dream and I am hoping to work as a doctor when I am older! The Sanctuary has given me the most amazing opportunity to learn more about alternative health services, and how these therapies can be combined with modern medicine to create an overall healing of the body! I have a genuine passion for working with people and I am looking forward to hopefully working in a hospital one day!
What has been the biggest challenge you’ve overcome in your life?
2017 was possibly one of the hardest years of my life in terms of my own health, and so to overcome this I have really tried to focus on the good in life, and I always try to think about one positive thing that has happened in my day and write it down. I like to look back on these moments at the end of each year and be reminded of everything positive that has happened throughout the year!
If you could give one word of advice what would it be?
One piece of advice I would give to people is to follow your instincts. Your instincts are your body’s way of telling you when something good or bad is going to happen, and it is so important that you listen to your body’s instincts, as they are almost always right!
What is the most inspiring quote you have heard?
“Speak to people in a way that if they died the next day, you’d be satisfied with the last thing you said to them”. I think this quote is extremely inspiring as it encourages you to always be kind with your words. It also teaches you to appreciate the time you have with people, as you never know when they may be gone… life is so unpredictable so live with no regrets!
Do you have an ethos you live by?
I strongly believe in the idea of ‘life is too short, do things you enjoy’. I believe life is too short to do things that don’t bring you joy. Life is so much more fun when you choose to do things that you love!
If you could invite any three people over for dinner (dead or alive), who would it be and why?
Grandpa – my grandpa unfortunately passed away when I was only young. I would have loved to have spent more time with him, and to get to know more about his German culture.
My great grandma – my great grandma is a person who always has a story to tell. Since being diagnosed with dementia, she has been telling lots of stories about her childhood and so I would love to hear more about her childhood and her upbringing!
My nan – my nan has always been a light in my life and always seems to know exactly what to say to me when I need advice. She has stuck by my side through think and thin and I genuinely love having her around so much. Plus she cooks the most amazing food!
