“The day gets better when I see you Rahil.”


“The day gets better when I see you.”

This is the sentence that is often heard by nurse Rahil aka proudlynubian, and her colleague Elina at work, which makes them feel comfortable in the city of Helsinki.

“A good work atmosphere helps to cope even in heavier moments. We support each other, listen and discuss situations. Humor is also essential,” Rahil describes.

Rahil Khalifa, aka proudlynubian is of Sudanese origin and works as a registered nurse in Finland. She is very active in the hospital where she works. Rahil was recently featured in a recruiting campaign made by Helsinki City of Finland to attract more staff to join various Helsinki City’s hospitals.

Helsinki City of Finland!

Helsinki is the capital and most populous city of Finland. Located on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, it is the seat of the region of Uusimaa in southern Finland. Helsinki is the country’s most important center for politics, education, finance, culture, and research.

When she is not saving lives, Rahil is an active model.
