I am Sophronia Samouti and I am in the 6th form of the private school GC School of Careers in Nicosia aiming to study medicine and become a compassionate -person centred physician. I believe in a whole-person, multidisciplinary and humanistic approach to medicine. I am sure that joining the International Institute for Compassionate Care will help me enhance my skills in compassion, empathy and altruistic approach to patient care. I am participating in the IICC seminars and have learnt a lot on Compassionate Care. I strongly believe that teenagers need to be familiar with the principles of compassionate care and especially prospective medical students. My hobbies include: travel, ballet dancing, music, reading, history, volunteer work in healthcare settings and food/travel writing.
