Tell us who you are
Hey, my name is Kemi and I’m 26 years old from London.
What are some words you’d use to describe yourself?
Fun, caring, nurturing, and bubbly.
What are you most passionate about in life?
I love to travel. I love to see the world, experience different cultures, different languages, different foods. I think it’s another way to humble myself and remember how lucky I am and that my world is not the only world, the world is a much bigger place.
Tell us about your day job
I’m an A&E nurse. I have been for the past year and a half. It can be hard, intense and frustrating but I feel lucky that I’m able to provide care and comfort in scary and difficult times for people.
What made you want to be a nurse?
I started nursing because I love to help people. I’ve always been quite a nurturing person, so nursing seemed like the perfect fit.
What was it like working through the pandemic?
I didn’t really have time to think about how it was impacting me. I was more concerned about being there to help the people that were sick and to help my colleagues.
