“Every one of us can start changing headlines when we start reaching out our hands.”
As the title suggests, I am nearly six feet tall (~181 cm) and definitely still growing. Someone recently asked me (after reading my blog), “How tall do you think you’ll grow to be?” I need to clarify: I’m a big fan of something called word play. I warmly responded that I am convinced I have finished growing physically but I hope I never stop growing emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I’m a twenty-something currently processing a quarter-life crisis; these thoughts are the byproduct of confusion, uncertainty, and a dash of loneliness.
My career is comprised of two specialties: pediatric and emergency nursing. As it turns out, in order to successfully work with children you have to be goofy, say silly things, and make fun of yourself often. I am fluent in English, Spanish, and (slowly) learning French. I’d rather explore the eccentric corners of this big, fat globe we occupy than do almost anything else.
I am currently volunteering with Mercy Ships, a faith-based nonprofit, until June 2017. I spent 4 months in Madagascar and will be in Benin, West Africa, for the upcoming year. My work with the Mercy Ships screening team began in August. This team is responsible for finding and selecting patients for surgery as well as coordinating the logistics of their stay on the ship.
