I have shaped my skill of evidence-based practice during the first year clinical placement. Since then have been applying the skill in my everyday life to help improve the health of my family, friends and other relatives, especially in developing the health quality of my elderly family. Recently I visited my family back in Indonesia for Christmas and I took the time to visit my 85-year-old grandmother who has been looked after by one of my aunties. For her age, my grandmother was doing very well in carrying out her activities of daily living. However, she refused to walk independently since she had a fall two days before my arrival.
I wanted to start a club about cups. Ever since I was 7 years old I wanted to start a club for cupstacking and teach others this wonderful skill. Cupstacking involved stacking cups in sequences while also trying to get the fastest time possible. It started in the summer of 2015 and I taught summer camp children cupstacking just for fun. Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?” So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor.

A few weeks later, similar injuries impacted my body, so I immediately decided to go to physical therapy in order to get me back on my feet - literally. All in all, I was fascinated with the work physical therapists did: From treating injuries, to rehabilitation, and to providing individuals with the confidence to continue with their passions. As a result of this experience, I proceeded to taking a class within my school, known as Regional Occupational Program, that dealt with healthcare professions. Little did I know that I would discover a philanthropic side to me that would lead me to want to pursue a career in the healthcare

Some of the support groups were guests or speakers that would come in and talk about their experiences and knowledge in domestic violence. I would also attend groups to talk about my experiences so others would know they were not alone.
My nursing experience began in July of 2005, when I began working at Kaiser Permanente as a certified medical assistant. As a medical assistant (MA), the MA can do something as minor as checking someone’s weight, to administering immunizations under the supervision of the LVN or the physician. The things I did over the seven years as a MA, was limited and I began feeling complacent and wanted to do more with my career. I continued my education with the assistance of the company I worked for, and received my LVN in 2012. There, I transitioned to a department that is considered a high-risk perinatal unit.
