Vicky, trainee nurse at ISSI, DRC

“I’m in my second year of study at ISSI, and honestly speaking, getting to this level hasn’t been easy at all.” 

Vicky is currently studying in her second year at ISSI. Whilst she has found the process of getting her academics a little challenging, she also feels proud to be training at ISSI.    

Facing New Challenges

“Since the moment I got to Kinshasa, I have faced a great deal of problems. Moreover, getting used to the new training programme at ISSI has been a bit difficult for me. Since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted to be a nurse, and I feel so proud to be training at ISSI.” 

Wonder, Yellow Sunday and ISSI have helped Vicky make her dreams as a young girl come that much closer to being true. Despite the new challenges she’s had to face, she’s still proud to be training at ISSI and feels that this is the place for her to be. 

A Family Away from Home 

Vicky has not only gained qualifications and new knowledge that’ll help her become a nurse, she’s also gained a family unit. The new relationships she’s formed whilst being at ISSI work as a motivation to keep her working hard.  

“I’ve gained a new family here, and this motivates me to keep striving to become well-trained nurse.” 

Giving Back

“There’s a saying we have: The hand that gives, also receives. So I assure you that I will do what’s in my hand to make the most of everything I’m receiving to save women’s lives.”
