Charming, the photo shops from my youth, were my reality again. That’s me on that photo, taken in beautiful Bangladesh, where I went for my first assignment.
I work as a nurse at different intensive care units in Belgium and love adventures and travelling which broadens my horizons and exposes me to different social and cultural contexts. Exploring awakens an enormous curiosity within me and a longing to contribute more. I felt ecstatic when I got to be a part of the Médecins Sans Frontières / Doctors Without Borders (MSF) family, the organisation I wanted to commit to.
I was selected as an emergency unit nursing team supervisor for Ukhia, Bangladesh. I supervised a team of nurses and nurses’ aides in a diphtheria treatment centre in the world’s largest refugee camp. I have learned without borders.
My head full of extraordinary memories on the way back home, I wrote down my thoughts and feelings. Coincidentally, it was brought up during my debriefing with the communications team and I was motivated to write a blog. If my writing could contribute in any way then it might be a stepping stone to expressing my voice.
