Please briefly describe your clinical/medical experience to date?
I am currently a paediatrics registrar with a subspecialty in allergy. After completing my medical degree from the University of Cambridge, I came to London for my foundation years (F1/F2) and subsequently paediatrics training. I have also completed a year in Medical Education, further broadening my experience.
What motivated you to enter paediatric care in the first place?
I initially wanted to be a paediatrician as my playful and animated personality naturally gravitated me towards working with children. Although, as I’ve journeyed further into paediatric care, my motivation has evolved. My main motivation now is the privilege of being able to care for the purest and most resilient souls among us. Witnessing the bravery of children fills me with a heartfelt determination to protect their health, nurture their wellbeing, and empower them to flourish. Each day reaffirms to me that this isn’t just a career path, but an honour to be able to support extraordinary children on their journey.
How will the funding from The Evie Dove Foundation help you to advance your career and your impact/services to children?
Receiving funding from The Evie Dove Foundation would be a transformative opportunity for me to enhance the impact of my services for children. With this support, I would have the privilege to participate in an observership at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, a renowned institution globally. This will be an invaluable experience – helping me to refine my clinical and research skills further, and building connections with colleagues and mentors on an international scale.
How did you find out about The Evie Dove Foundation?
I first found out about The Evie Dove Foundation from paediatrics colleagues, who spoke of it with deep gratitude and appreciation.
Tell us about yourself!
I am originally from Thailand and spent my childhood in Malaysia. I moved to the UK for University and have stayed here since. One of my absolute favourite things to do is cook and discover various cuisines, and luckily, London offers so much to explore in that regard. Despite a setback from tearing my ACL while skiing last year, I’ve discovered a newfound love for running during my rehabilitation journey. When it’s time to unwind, you’ll often find me kicking back with some classical tunes, brewing up a delicious cup of coffee, or strolling along the Thames.
