I am a cheerful, confident, outgoing optimist who tries to see the silver lining under each dark cloud. I consider that one of my best attributes is my sense of humor and the ability to laugh at myself. I am known to be exceptionally compassionate and have been blessed with the gifts of empathy, understanding and intuition. I enjoy voluntary work in the medical community and am active in outreach programs. This gives a sense of meaning and purpose to my life. I relish spending time with family and friends and enjoy socialising on many levels. I have friends from various spheres of my life. Whilst I am a fun loving person, there is definitely a serious and spiritual component to my personality. I am a non conformist and liberally minded regarding most issues. I emigrated to this country from South Africa about 13 years ago and yes, I do have an 'English" accent.
