An idea worth spreading
If everyone in the world did one altruistic thing or helped one person (without selfish motivation) everyday that would be ver 7 billion good acts done in a day, 49 billion a week, 196 billion per month and 2555 billion or 2.555 trillion. See the big picture now? Would make a big difference to everyone including you and me.
I'm passionate about
Healthcare, whether it be nursing or medicine.Anything related to the ocean, swimming or fishing. Technology, I have studied it and working in the IT field. Still I am constantly amazed by what we do.
Talk to me about
Anything. As a nurse I have been exposed to almost everything. As a traveler I have spoken to many people and shared many ideas. As a person I have an open mind and enjoy people challenging my ideas.
People don't know I'm good at
Fishing, my dad taught me when I was little, but only in the last few years have I really gotten back into it. I restored my Grandfather's old rods to working order and know go fishing ever other day.
My TED story
TED was brought to my attention by an international student who I was on a nursing placement with in a psychiatric hospital. I have always been tech savvy so I was surprised when she suggested something to me that I hadn't heard of. I was writing a paper of the taboos associated with suicide and undertaking a suicide prevention program. She suggested I look at JD's talk on suicide. I did and was blown away by what I found. NowI check back as often as I can, am trying to attend a TEDx conference in Sydney and am letting as many people as I know, know about TED.com. It's truly inspirational and definitely an idea worth spreding.
