Much like Florence Nightingale, celebrated English nurse, 21-year-old Amy Kok wanted to make a difference in the lives of others and carve out a meaningful career. While Florence Nightingale was influenced by the call of God, Amy’s head was turned when she went for a 1-week nursing placement in a hospital, during her time as an officer in the St. John’s Brigade.

“During the placement, my perspectives on helping people changed dramatically. I felt inadequate because I was surrounded by sick people but I lacked the skills to look after them. It was that experience which aroused my interest in pursuing an enriching career in Nursing,” Amy shares.
