Why did you decide to join MUNSS?

I joined MUNSS because I love nursing and financial aid is an important make or break point when applying to university. I was fortunate enough to be awarded a scholarship and I would like to help make this a possibility for other students

What are some goals this year regarding your MUNSS role? (i.e. plans, events, changes you want to make, etc.)?

I’d like to make awards accessible to all streams of nursing and make it as smooth sailing as possible!

What advice do you have for your fellow nursing students?
Join clubs and dont make school about school, make lots of friends and take healthy risks so when you look back in your life you can smile at your memories !

Fun Fact: I have dextrocardia and all my organs are on the opposite side)!
