Her passion involves global health and she hopes to be able to work toward making a meaningful difference particularly with respect to refugee, asylum seeker and migrant health.

Something a lot of people don’t know about Mirsada is that outside of the hospital ward, you can find her collecting Pokémon’s – she’s on level 35 in PokémonGo (which used to be a more dramatic score before they increased the levels to 50)!
