Jannet’s Story

Jannet discovered her passion for caring when she was just a kid. “In primary school whenever someone would get a cut, I’d rush them to get a plaster. Health just fits for me.” Like most people, Jannet had a key experience that shaped what she wanted to be. For her, it was watching her mother’s pregnancies. “My mum had seven children, and while she was pregnant I was by her side, rubbing her back, going to appointments, watching the health workers. I was inspired.”

Now a graduate of our level 4 health course, Jannet has turned her passion into a future.
