Finding my niche in the world

That is Kiswahili word for "welcome!".I have developed a keen interest in photography of late,and so i admire that you are doing photography.

One of the jobs that i believe should be done from deep down the heart is nursing.I have been a patient in hospitals at one time or the other and so much has depended on the nurse that handles me.I have been handled by nurses who make you have hope of feeling better with time,there are those that want you to feel like it's criminal to be sick.The latter group is very easy to come by in public hospitals in my country.

I am sure you will make a great nurse since it is your passion.


All the best from Kenya,

Leah Auma Okeyo.
