WORDS I LIVE BY
Happiness is not ready made. You have to do that part yourself - through your thoughts, words, and actions.
MY HOBBIES OUTSIDE WORK
Cooking, weight lifting, painting
REASONS WHY I LOVE WHAT I DO
I love the world of medicine because if you’re doing it right, you get to connect with people. You get to be a source of knowledge and guidance during some of the most vulnerable and difficult times in other’s lives. It gives meaning to the job of a physician. I love being a medical student because I get to learn so much, every day! And all that I learn now is going to make me that much better of a doctor for my future patients.
ANYTHING ELSE YOU WANT TO TELL US?
My advice to anyone who is working towards a career in medicine, or anyone who is struggling to balance their time, is to never let go of the things you love. If you give up your hobbies or sacrifice your relationships to reach your career goal, what will it all be worth once you get to the top? You will always be busy. You will always have more work to do. So don’t delay gratification - make time for what you love right now, in this moment.
