I previously studied for a degree at the Canterbury Christ Church University in Events Management. When I returned to Gibraltar, I found that this industry was quite difficult to get into. I saw some vacancies for Nursing Assistants, so I decided to give this a try; so many of my family members are nurses, it is basically in my blood. I completely fell in love with the work. Then, whilst training as a Nursing Assistant, the degree at the University of Gibraltar was recommended by some of the lecturers in the School of Health Studies. I decided to wait it out a little bit as I wanted the experience of working in the hospital before just going straight into the degree, but I believe that going for it in the end was the best decision that I made.
