What made you decide to be a nurse?

It was a very natural decision for me. Since I was at school I have always wanted to work with children and do something in a caring profession. After weekend work babysitting throughout high school and volunteering at a local Primary School, I realised that children’s nursing was a good fit for me. I applied for a nursing course after completing my A-Levels.

How did you come to be involved with Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity?
