“It was an amazing experience and I met some great people. I got the chance to work alongside some fantastic staff members who also became close friends.

“There were laughs, lots of tears, stress and sleepless nights. It was a privilege to be part of people’s life journey, some happy and some sad. From the proposals to the last meals and for some the whole a life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for learning from you and becoming a better person myself. Now is the time for me to move on. I have some good news though.”
