Hi, I'm Paul and I am from Fiji. I was born and raised in a small town called Nausori and I spent my younger days growing up on the family farm. I’m currently a Biomedical student at Otago University. I previously studied a diploma in Health care program but I only did the first semester. I wish to further my studies in the field of medicine and hope to achieve my ultimate goal of becoming a doctor.

Kia Ora, my name is Samuel and I am a dedicated young man eager to work with the elderly. I have had extensive previous experience with the elderly, working in the cafe in a retirement home and I absolutely fell in love with being a worker / carer. I’m smart, eloquent and a great conversationalist. I love to talk AND listen.

Epsom, Auckland
I am an overseas trained doctor currently working as a phlebotomist at Middlemore Hospital. I used to work at Starship and Auckland City Hospital as a phlebotomist as well. My work experience at Starship Hospital has made me a more compassionate person and enhanced my skills in working with children with disabilities. I love working with them.
