It is the people around me who shape and inspire me.
"I enjoy interacting with my students, patients, and their family members, which probably explains why I have been in healthcare for more than 20 years! While it sounds impressive to say that I am inspired by a Nobel laureate or an Everest mountaineer, I find that few can emulate such characters. It is the people around me who shape and inspire me.
For example, Mr Mohd Jalil Abbas, the gantry officer at SGH Block 4, always has a ready smile for everyone and is always full of warmth. He's shown me that it's possible to derive fulfillment and happiness from a seemingly routine job – it's really up to us to make the most out of what we do."
