    She explained that during her rounds at the facility, she met a child who was in low spirits and decided to cheer him by dancing to a popular children's song.

    "The patient was admitted with a fracture on his leg and seemed timid. I played the music from my phone and started dancing and that livened him up. As a nurse, I felt obliged to ensure that my patients are okay," she explained.

    Her trick worked as the patient who was sitting upright on the bed began moving around his arms and leg. She put a smile on his face.

    Robai revealed that she was a student at the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC), Kitale. She joined the institution in 2020 and is pursuing a course in nursing.

    The bubbly nurse added that dancing was her passion and was an art she uses to pass messages of hope to those around her, including strangers.

    "I initially began as a motivational speaker and had a YouTube channel. I created the channel to motivate and inspire the youth and incorporated dancing to push my message further," she stated.

    A look into some of her social media accounts reveals that she has danced alongside people from all walks of life including street children, watchmen and boda boda riders to brighten their days.

    On Tiktok, she has amassed a following of nearly 79,000 and has accrued nearly half-a-million likes.

    Kenyans on social media have tried to reach out to her to personally appreciate her noble act, with the majority recommending her for changing the perception of Kenyan nurses.
