How will I contribute to improving Indigenous health as a qualified medical practitioner or health worker?
As someone who has worked in aged care for almost 6 years, I have a passion to help people be the best version of themselves and to just assist even in the smallest way to make a difference. Although I love my job, I have always felt that I could do more. I have decided to pursue a career where I can assist people further. Once I am qualified, I intend to use my qualifications to help any disadvantaged, particularly the Aboriginal community as the health care system at the moment, including staff is not always suitable. As an Aboriginal woman, I can see the differences in how they are treated amongst everyone else and I intend to change that to how they deserve.
