Todays guest, joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast interview, is Rita Miller, a lady with a truly fascinating story.
Unlike many of the guests on Join Up Dots, who have become successful by business, online marketing or just doing amazing stuff, our guest set out on path that was never intended to lead to success and fame.
In fact it has been a hard push to get her on the show today.
But it is a story that should be told, as from her beginnings in Malta being educated at the Convent of the Sacred Heart School, Rita Miller has thrived when her passion for helping people has been used to maximum effect.
Training to be a nurse at Hull Royal Infirmary in the North of England her path seemed set.
But as we see time and time again, on Join Up Dots, something can occur which brings a persons life to the place that they can provide the most value to the world at the most unexpected times.
And that is the true definition of success.
And for our guest that was when a visit to Kagando Hospital which nestles in the beautiful hills of Uganda, 20km from the Congo Border.
She had found her home in one of the poorest countries on earth, providing support, love and care to the kind of people that have very little to offer back.
So what was it that made this remarkable lady, change direction and travel across he globe, to be with people that she had never met before?
And what makes Rita continue to perform such an all giving task day after day, in conditions and climate so different from where her life in medicine began?
Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs, on todays free podcast with the one and only Rita Miller
During the show we discussed such weighty topics such as:
How the BBC tv programme “The Vicar Of Dibley” was the tipping point that changed her life and set her on a path to Africa!
How she feels that a good way of starting is to “Dream big and start small” and then take it from there!
How she loves the people of Uganda, and their simple life stimulates her in ways that she could never have dreamt possible back in the UK!
How she battles against the limited resources that she has at her disposal in the hospital in Africa, but wont give up trying to provide the care that the patients deserve!
