Perceptions of Nursing and Midwifery

20 Facts about you by Rachael Lambe

  1. I am an adult nursing student.
  2. I am a twin and the eldest of 3 children.
  3. I have a cat called Kitty, who gets called Katherine when she misbehaves (which is fairly often!).
  4. I love animals, they’re such incredible creatures!
  5. My car is called Muppet.
  6. I love travelling. I don’t care where I go as long as I’m having an adventure!
  7. I volunteered at a wildlife sanctuary in South Africa when I was 18 (which was the best experience of my life – highly recommend it!).
  8. My favourite colour is orange.
  9. I have been very fortunate and travelled a lot throughout my life. My favourite places include South Africa, Venice, Australia, Singapore, America, and Disney.
  10. I’m a Student Quality Ambassador which is a North West initiative for students studying any healthcare related course and are interested in raising standards of care. Being an SQA has presented so many incredible opportunities such as fundraising for charity, running a national project alongside my friend and colleague Ellen Soutter, attending some incredible development days, and meeting some wonderful and very inspiring individuals!
  11. Ellen and I are the leads for the Expanding End of Life Care Project, which has won 2 awards through The Academy of Fabulous NHS Stuff (Piccalilley of the Week and HMS Victory Award), led to us being finalists for the Student Nursing Times Awards 2018, and has seen us present at conferences across the North of England. We even had the incredible opportunity to write a blog post for the Nursing Times a few weeks ago, which you can read here.
  12. I currently volunteer for a local homeless charity which I really enjoy doing.
  13. I am a Time for Change Champion.
  14. The beach is a place of solace for me, I try to go whenever I can!
  15. I am petrified of spiders (no idea why, just don’t like them!).
  16. After finishing college I worked as a client care assistant in a veterinary practice.
  17. Cheesy music is my favourite type of music.
  18. I come from a family of nurses (which I will discuss further on Day 27 of this challenge!).
  19. I once had my flip-flop stolen off my foot by a serval!
  20. My brother and sister are my best friends and I love them to absolute pieces!

Those are my facts…  I hope you enjoyed them!
