“It’s an enormous privilege to be allowed into another human’s most personal space within seconds of meeting them. I am blessed on a daily basis to enjoy the sort of beautiful, close human connection which is otherwise a rare phenomenon. I find my worth in knowing that I can make a positive impact on people’s lives pretty much every day. Sometimes, it’s not even the dramatic resuscitations but the hugs that make the biggest difference. It’s most important to me to be useful and I do feel that I am useful.”
