Do you have any current projects that you’d like to tell us about?
A few years ago, I started a medical blog which has now reached 7k followers. The main aim of this blog is raising awareness about heart disease in women and sharing my knowledge of heart disease prevention and timely detection. The blog got exceedingly popular among people under 50 as I am writing about very important and often complicated things in a simple and accessible language.
Where do you see yourself in five years’ time?
I am hoping to make a career in research and, having gained enough knowledge and skills, contribute to public health initiatives in women’s cardiovascular health, cancer prevention, Long-COVID, etc. Apart from my career aspirations, I would like to travel more and explore places I have never seen, Australia, for example.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
In 2021, I won Chevening scholarship which eventually brought me to the UK. Chevening is one of the most highly competitive study grants funded by the British government, and only 1.5% of applicants make it to the final point. Chevening gave me an amazing network of contacts across the world and inspired me on further achievements.
What is your favourite thing about working at King’s?
The amount of support I get from my line manager and all other staff is outstanding. Everyone is so nice and welcoming. This is what I value the most at King’s- the amazing people that work here.
Spring, especially when Sakura trees start to bloom. To me, London in the Spring is a masterpiece.
“Poldark”, Winston Graham. A breath-taking story with a British character and interesting plot. Very inspirational. Highly recommend.
