It works on symbiotic relation: More you heal people, the more you nurture your happiness
Thanks to my prefrontal cortex that helped me choose this profession.

Anyone can be famous these days, my concern is whether my work and actions inspire people to improve their lives or if I am just a medium of entertainment for them.

I operate around 10 known medical pages (without the PR team 😜)
Which specialty do you find yourself inclined towards in the future?
The one that fits my rank.

Anatomy was my least favorite, but at the same time, it was my most favorite…. The story is too long to write here.
