Hello Friends! My name is Nikko Paolo, a Filipino working as a cardiac catheter nurse in London.

In this blog, I am sharing short stories, reflections, interests and useful information about my experiences in the United Kingdom as an overseas Filipino worker.

I divided my content into 5 different categories:

  • The Nursing Discipline
  • Human Relationships
  • Jesus Christ & Me
  • Creative Activities
  • Finance and Entrepreneurial Pursuits

Mainly, I want to focus on providing information about my work in the nursing profession because I feel like I can give more substance and value to my readers if I put more focus in this area. I chose a vocation in the healthcare industry because of the divine privilege to help other people especially the poor and the sick.

I also love learning from creative people and deeply admire how they transform their ideas… their vision into reality. I want to be like them. This is also one of the reasons why I am excited to tap into writing about my attempts to enrich my capabilities whether it is about making crafts, public speaking or building a business. I am eager and passionate to discover so many things and this blog is my stepping stone to reach infinite possibilities.

Although I have handled patients with cardiac problems, working inside the lab is totally different. At this point, I am…
