Uganda Dreaming: A Page from the Past
This is an entry from my diary that I kept whilst in Uganda……….the reason behind the direction I chose to follow in my nursing career. I never would have found my way without the experiences overseas that I got to live, with the programme,staff and patients associated with Nurture Africa. It has entirely changed my life, for the best!
“I could see myself moving back here to work. The way of life here is less extravagant, for obvious reasons, yet slow and less stressful. A very laid back look on life! From the small things such as eye contact when conversing, shows the legitimate purity of the people here and how they genuinely want to know, ‘How are you?’. It’s endearing and quite sincere. Uganda now owns a piece of my heart! This experience has definitely made me question where I want to go within the nursing world. Getting the hands on experience, here, has been what I can only describe as ‘out of this world’, folding my previous thoughts up into an imaginary paper plane and shooting them into the abyss of my unconscious mind.”
