Best in Class with a Heart….

IMG_20160818_191253

For me, the true essence of being a GSK PULSE Volunteer is to be able to give and to share my time and energy not only to the NGO that I will be working with and to the community they are serving, but also to my GSK colleagues, family, and friends as I share with them this journey of a lifetime. I am super excited to this life changing opportunity, to be an instrument in providing sustainable and high impact change to community and to GSK. This is also a great time for me to have a deeper and better understanding of GSK’s Mission to Do More, Feel Better, and Live Longer.

In line with the BSC KL R2R Mission statement, I would like to bring back the heart of GSK by sharing my experiences, bringing different perspective, leading by example, and living with the true GSK Values to be the BEST IN CLASS…with a HEART!”

I will be a PULSE Volunteer in the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc (CHAI), an international NGO  with a transformational goal: help save the lives of millions of people living with HIV/AIDS in the developing world by dramatically scaling up antiretroviral treatment. I will be working as Health Financing Associate, supporting CHAI in providing technical assistance on health financing to the Ministry of Health (MoH) in Swaziland, Africa with the goal of improving access and quality of health care by strengthening health financing. Specifically, I will be working in some key areas like improving the budget formulation process and improving expenditure and performance management. I am excited and nervous at the same time. But I am looking forward to share my exciting adventures with all you.

Let me end by saying BIG Thank You to my managers here in BSC KL (Jag, David, and Rhea) for inspiring me and giving me their 100% support to pursue my PULSE Journey. Thank you also to all my siblings, mentors, teammates, dearest friends, and Team Pinoy (the Filipino Community in BSC KL) for all their support and encouragement.
