In her own words,
"When I entered medical school, I made it a personal mission to never lose sight of who I was personally, while still developing professionally.
As I’ve advanced through school, I’ve realized how lucky I am to have this opportunity. From the complexity of medicine to the focus of surgery, this is now part of my personal identity as its something I’m so passionate about. Studying, staying late, all of that becomes easier when you have a genuine interest in the work. Medicine allows me to be challenged and experience diversity, while also working with my community. Spending every day learning new things, meeting interesting people, and furthering my education is pretty amazing."
