Tell us about yourself and what you do for ProviderTrust.
I came to the United States about nine years ago and started working in the finance field. I joined ProviderTrust 10 months ago as an Accounting Assistant.
What is your favorite memory at ProviderTrust?
My favorite forever memory is how I was welcomed at PT with a lot of warmth and excitement. I wasn’t rushed into learning everything and taking on too much responsibility too quickly.
What is something you’re proud of?
I am always humbled more than proud at how I have been able to travel here from another part of the world and make my little professional and a social dent in environments I wasn’t accustomed to at all.
What is your favorite value at ProviderTrust and why?
Model Positivity, because a positive attitude is all that is needed to accomplish and live a meaningful life.
Looking back on the last year, what is something significant that has happened to you?
Beginning my job at ProviderTrust. Also, quarantine and working from home has made me evermore grateful for all that God has granted me: from health and the blessing of being with friends and family, to the things I never cared about before, like going to the store when I wanted. I just feel like this year on the whole has made me a better person.
Tell us about your Passion Project! How did it get started?
After graduating from college, I spent some of my time at two institutions that hold a significant place in my heart. One is called SOS Villages; where children deprived of their biological parents are placed in an environment as close as possible to a home to fulfill their needs of love, security and education. The other is a cancer hospital where people were treated irrespective of their financial status in society. All I did at these two places was to listen to their frustration and disappointment and tried to answer their question: “why me?” A smile at the end of each conversation was what made me happy. I saw pain everyday and my effort to comfort was important to those I interacted with, teaching me a lesson that no matter what I am going through in my life, I am fortunate and privileged.
This is when I felt passionate about being grateful and merciful and holding onto that and doing something meaningful. The most meaningful thing to me is to feel another human being feel better. My passion is to leave a HUGE legacy. In the words of Maya Angelou, “Your legacy is every life you touch.”
How have you continued pursuing your passion during COVID-19?
The disappointment that has accompanied COVID has needed as many smiles and comforting thoughts as possible and I have tried to stay positive and find the good and learn more and more from suffering. Just trying to keep people around me in high spirits.
What does smarter and safer healthcare mean to you?
To me, it means to care and to help the world become a better place.
Who in your life has inspired you lately?
My forever inspiration is my father’s positivity and faith in God!
