Lease of life

by Jolyn Low

It’s a realisation that I’m studying what I am because utilising the knowledge and the skills that I have I actually have the potential to save lives. The sudden burden of that knowledge and its eventual actualisation burdens me – and drives me to do my very best in learning how to be the best that I can possibly be. Having the thought that what might stand between saving a life and witnessing a death is the amount of effort that I put in really puts things into perspective.
