: Proud of you, my daughter
Dear Emily, I don’t know if I have ever said this but you are one of the greatest blessings in life. Not just to me, but to everyone around.
When you first told us that you wanted to follow your grandmother's footstep and be a nurse, we were not surprised. Your kind and gentle self, coupled with your passion to care for others, makes nursing a perfect fit for you.
You have stayed true to your purpose of joining nursing: to care for others and serve the nation. On days that you are not working in the ward, you are often out and about in the community to go above and beyond your calling as a nurse. From delivering care packs to the needy to conducting art therapy sessions for the elderly, your compassion and empathy transcend beyond the hospital walls. The COVID-19 pandemic only made me realise how strong you are — spreading kindness as you’re battling the virus!
We still see you conducting online art therapy sessions with the seniors from St Theresa’s Home and St Luke’s ElderCare. Just before the heightened measures kicked in, you were working with other grassroots volunteers to distribute grocery packs and pamphlets with info on the pandemic as well as health tips to residents in the community.
My daughter, seeing how much you have achieved thus far makes me very proud of you. Thank you for always giving your best, and doing your part for the nation. I am also immensely grateful to the rest of your healthcare colleagues who are at the forefront of today’s battle against the virus… we are with you 💛
