If you will ask me 3 years ago where do I want to work or be an intern, I’ll confidently and will never think twice say “dito sa Pinas”. Of course that was 3 years ago. Three short years ago when I still don’t know what I want. Still don’t know my opportunities to work or be an intern somewhere else.
During the holidays, I talked to Nanay about my plans. And one of her statements struck me; she said “akala ko gusto mo dito magtrabaho at hindi ka aalis”. After explaining to her everything with matching tears (yeah, ako ng iyakin…) she understood now why I wanted to go there. She asked me things, like, will I ever be back here if ever? I said of course, I could train there then go back or save a lot first there then go back or have a vacation here if possible. I don’t know. Things can still change. I’ll know when I get there.
I’m currently inquiring in 3 hospitals. I’m excited and at the same time, very nervous. Who wouldn’t be? But if I’ll let this opportunity pass, I might regret one day why I didn’t even try. (Now I need your prayers for this one, sana maayos at matuloy)
Some of my friends question me why do I even want to try. That I’m more needed here. But I told them, my reasons and I hope they understood. I really hope they do.
Should I explain my reasons to all of you? I guess not. But one thing is certain; I’m doing this for myself. I’m doing this for my future... for a better future. And if that future includes you and that’s just tremendous at the same time exhilarating because it’s a dream come true.
Now, let's put these wings to test.
