Ara Jin with JL Rocks Enamel Rings and Chunky Band Rings

Next up in our Women Who Give Back series features Ara Jin an ER Nurse in one of New York City’s leading hospitals. This talented young woman gives so much on a daily basis, working on the front line to assist with COVID cases as well as managing a multitude of other ER issues. We invited Ara to enjoy a day of much needed pampering at JL Rocks HQ. Read on to learn more about her incredible story.

Becoming A Nurse

It wasn’t Ara Jin’s lifelong dream to become an emergency department nurse. In fact, she applied to nursing school on a lark. When she mo ved to the United States in 2018, a leading New York City hospital felt surprisingly relaxed compared to the long hours (13-hour days, 25 days per month) she was used to in her native South Korea.

Working The Front Line

Then, COVID changed everything. Jin was tasked with helping the most vulnerable patients, and the virus kept her from attending her grandmother’s funeral, mourning the loss of her dog, and introducing her boyfriend to the family. Despite the challenges, Jin is proud of her work (though she remains humble when people compliment her).

Making a Difference

At the end of the day, this front-line worker hopes to make a difference. “I believe love is love, women’s rights are human rights, no human is illegal, and pets are part of the family,” she says.
