"Children have really short attention spans.   My experience working with children in KKH's paediatric department has taught me to conduct eye assessments quickly while their concentration lasts. It has also taught me that I have to stay cheerful, high-spirited and energetic to help the children feel comfortable.   At times, it does get really challenging.  I attend dance classes after work in order to unwind and relieve any stress that has built up throughout the day.  I also enjoy catching up with my family on weekends.  After spending time with them, I'll be ready to look forward to work on Monday."
