My name is David Sunny IKHILE. I am an MA social work student at University of Bolton. I came into social work to make a little difference in peoples’ lives. My friends tell me all the time that my passion for helping others knows no bound and I felt happy and fulfilled when I have an opportunity to help.
I chose Elephant and lion cub because …
… of the character of an elephant and how it relates to social work. In this object, a lioness is crossing the savannah with her cub. The savannah is excessively hot and the cub was in great difficulty walking. An elephant realized that the cub would die and carried him in his trunk to a pool of water walking beside his mother.
The character of an elephant is a great lesson for mankind to help others especially vulnerable people and social workers are in the forefront. An elephant is gentle, attentive, sociable, intelligent, determined and takes great care. A social worker must have these traits to succeed.
