Giovanni Gallo


Giovanni decided to nurse when he was inspired by those caring for the poorest children in Brazil.

He trained and qualified in his home country of Italy– and is now exploring opportunities and developing his skills in Croydon.

“After college, I played music and travelled. I was inspired by some special nurses working in the favelas of Rio and wanted to make a difference too. Now I’m
being inspired in Croydon. It’s a vibrant, diverse place and there’s a new challenge every day. It’s big enough to be interesting, but small enough to progress
