Interview with Mrs. Maya Jouni Sinno
Patients’ Relations and Accounting Manager
2009- to present
1- Why did you choose or what path led you to the CCCL?
In this busy world of ours, I believe it’s always gratifying when people find the time to help others. Working for a noble cause and specifically helping sick children get the help needed and for free was a dream to me. My dream came true when I applied for a vacancy at CCCL and now after 8 years I can tell you it’s the best feeling ever. What would be better than working to save lives!
2- After few years, describe one of the best moments that you had at the center?
I have many moments in mind! However, one of the best was when I received a message from a patient who just finished his treatment saying “Thank you Maya for being by my side when I needed you the most” this actually brought tears to my eyes.
3- If you could change one aspect of your job what would it be and why?
I wish I can end the pain of all sick children, I wish I can stop their tears. But then when I look back and remember all those patients who finished treatment I know and I trust that, because of CCCL, few months later those children will be fine.
4- Why do you continue to work at the CCCL?
8 years now at CCCL, and I still wake up every day with the same exact enthusiasm and motivation I had the very first day, I come every day with a purpose to do a change in a child’s life and with this famous quote for Danny Thomas in my head that “no child should die in the dawn of life”, I know I’m in the right place.
5- What is the most rewarding part of being a CCCL team member?
The most rewarding part is that I know I work for a respectful organization whereby its leadership and all employees work hand in hand every day to give our sick children a second chance to live.
6- If you would like to write one sentence about the center to celebrate its 15 years anniversary, what would it be?
It’s not about counting years, it’s about counting the blessings and the lives that are being saved, cheers to many more!! Happy 15th CCCL.
