That was about close to 4 years ago and yesterday, on the 1st of October 2017, the iron count in my blood finally went up to 13.1 and I was eligible to donate.
It was an incredible feeling, not just because I wanted to tick it off my bucket list but I got to be a part of something bigger than myself.
Everyday people need blood, as a universal donor it is a privilege to finally be able to give to the blood bank. They tell me 1 bag can save up to 3 lives.
Here’s a video of me donating blood, forever immortalised.
Thinking of: BTS’s 피 땀 눈물.
