Sometimes I really hate my fellow countrymen. They’re playing a fresh round of let’s bash Andy because he’s voting for Scottish independence therefore he must hate English people because of those stupid comments that got taken out of context.
Meet Aimee who is discussing her perspective on being a young student nurse and outside perceptions.
I will be 21 when I qualify next year. I still get met with comments like ‘aren’t you a bit too young to be a nurse?’ on my last placement a patient’s carer said I looked more I was like 16 and should still be in high school rather than 20 and in my second year of university.
But I still work damn hard at university. I may not have had some of the life experiences that more mature students may have had. But I pride myself on being caring and compassionate and that’s good enough for me. The rest will come.
