MY BREAK­THROUGH MO­MENT

NADIA FORDE

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Life - - STYLE NOTEBOOK -

I orig­i­nally wanted to be a nurse and had my place sorted in univer­sity. I’ve al­ways been fas­ci­nated with psy­chol­ogy and nurs­ing, es­pe­cially pae­di­atric nurs­ing. Straight af­ter school, I de­cided to take a year out, as mod­el­ling was giv­ing me the op­por­tu­nity to travel and work in dif­fer­ent coun­tries; a part of me wanted those ex­pe­ri­ences. Mod­el­ling led to act­ing and sing­ing, which had al­ways been pas­sions of mine, but which I al­ways be­lieved were well out of my reach. Now I love be­ing cre­ative, work­ing with amaz­ingly talented peo­ple and I just get my nurs­ing fix liv­ing vi­car­i­ously through my school friend Sarah, who is now an A&E nurse. That mo­ment when I re­alised ‘This is my ca­reer’? Prob­a­bly right now! I’ve al­ways just gone with the flow and made de­ci­sions that felt right at that mo­ment in time. Life is too short to live oth­er­wise.
