‘Don’t stop dreaming:’ Filipina nanny in Dubai finishes Nursing Assistant course


- Advertisment -

Nerissa Clacio Picones, 46, is among the over 200 students who graduated from Filipino Institute. A nanny for a British-Irish family in Dubai, Picones finished the 24-week professional diploma program Nursing Assistant. 

“I have taken the course as I needed to enhance my knowledge and seek great opportunities in the field, as well as to help our fellow especially during these trying times,” the Dubai-based Filipino nanny said. 

Picones, who has been in the UAE for eight years now, said the main reason why she opted to work abroad is to be able to help her family and give them the life that they deserve. Before working in the UAE, the OFW used to work in a dress shop in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.  

As a nanny, she is in charge of looking after her employers’ child. 

When asked about her experience with the Filipino Institute, she said: “It’s all amazing! All the staff and our trainer have been very helpful in fulfilling our dreams to become nursing assistants.” 

After taking the professional diploma, Picones said she plans to find a job that is related to her course ‘perhaps’ in another country. 

“Don’t stop dreaming. Always put in your mind that you’re doing this because of your family and surely you will not get lost,” she added.
