HI! My name is Laiba and I am 17 years old and I am hoping to become a future medic!

I joined FDP (Femmes De Paix) to inspire young people in my local area. To encourage them to work towards charitable causes that they are passionate about. Hence this is why I am passionate about my role as the Equality and Diversity Ambassador for #TeamFDP. I strongly support our organisation’s mission, which is to seek out inspirational ideas. Ideas to encourage people to work together and make a difference in their communities.

Regularly volunteering at a care home has been an enriching experience for me. I provide company to elderly residents who love having someone to talk to about their day. In my spare time, I love playing netball for fitness and karate. These sports have taught me to remain calm and focused under pressure.

For the future, I am working towards being able to pursue a career in Medicine. So far, I have had the opportunity to shadow doctors in a hospital. I really look forward to being able to pursue a fulfilling career in medicine, where I will be able to apply my scientific knowledge to help others in moments where they often feel most vulnerable.

We are on Twitter come say Hello.
