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 in 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.

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 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.
