Kim Delos Santos shared about her life outside the entertainment industry and revealed her desire to contribute to psychiatric mental health.
After Kim left the showbiz industry, she migrated to the United States and had a new start. She shared her experiences on the online talk show “Just In” about how she has lived her life far from the limelight and public attention.
“At first medyo mahirap siya as in, kasi hindi naman ako nakapagtapos sa Pilipinas, eh. So, I have to start from the bottom up.” she said.
Kim is currently working as a dialysis nurse in the United States. In a previous interview, she said that it is not easy to be a nurse in the U.S., especially during pandemic times. She even experienced discrimination when she was accused of being a carrier of the COVID-19 virus.
As of now, she is studying to be a psychiatric mental health nurse.
“Ngayon ay nag-aaral na naman ako ulit. I’m back in school again as psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner,” she happily said.
“It’s something interesting, para naman na kakaiba siya. Saka gusto ko ang psych, eh, I like it,” she added.
Kim became interested in becoming a psychiatric mental health nurse because of her desire to help people, especially kids, who are experiencing anxiety and depression. Due to the pandemic, the cases of mental health problems have also increased in the United States.
“Ang hindi napapansin ng mga tao, malaking epekto sa mga bata rin, because they are not going to school right now and they’re home and they are isolated.
“Kung may siblings sila, siyempre okay lang. Kung wala silang siblings it’s not really good for them, so medyo naninibago sila,” Kim explained.
Kim Delos Santos is a former actress in the Philippines. Among the shows she became part of are “Anna Karenina”, “T.G.I.S.”, and “Ikaw Lamang”.
In a previous report by KAMI, Kim revealed that she is a big fan of Maine Mendoza and AlDub, her former love team with Alden Richards.
Recently, AlDub fans have been in conflict with Kapuso actress Gabbi Garcia. Maine-Alden supporters bashed the actress for seemingly pushing Alden to be paired with Julie Ann San Jose.
