Kindness People: Nalishebo Elliott
I first met Nalishebo at a powerful purpose building facilitator workshop she was leading back in 2013. Nalishebo is one of those people who always exudes humble confidence and compassion. A remarkable person in many ways.
Nalishebo is now a mum of 2 adorable boys, a registered Nurse and currently in a role as Head of Patient Experience. She is also a woman on a worthy mission co- running a social business called Kashebo with her twin sister.
See below some of Nalishebo insights on kindness and choosing better…
Describe yourself: “I am a conscientious person that loves her family very much. I adore my husband and children but also very involved with my extended family affairs who live across the globe: in Africa, Australia and the UK. I have been in the health care industry mainly in acute hospitals for 21 years. First as a registered Nurse and currently in a role as Head of Patient Experience. My personal attributes in these roles relate to my caring and compassionate disposition to vulnerable individuals
I have an identical twin sister and we are both passionate about encouraging young people and women to be all that they can be. I also have a strong desire to see women break out of cycles that inhibit their potential hence completing a Doctorate in ‘The Health and Wellbeing of Female Street Sex Workers’ and being a volunteer in a Women’s shelter and running an empowerment program for teenage girls”
In your view -what is kindness essentially about ?“My perspective on kindness is about seeing beyond a current need and looking for an opportunity to be considerate. It requires creativity to find a way to bless another individual in a way that puts the other person first”
What is the kindest thing you have personally experienced recently? “My 4 year old son tells me every morning that I am pretty, beautiful and gorgeous. He is not told to say this but he does from the bottom of his heart.
