What do you do?
I am a fourth year medical student, currently in Georgia.
What’s the best part of your profession? What made you choose this profession?
I have always wanted to be a physician. In fact, by the time I was 15, I was so set in my decision that I did not even bother to make other plans. I always thought there was a certain magic in the way doctors heal their patients. Doctors get to witness humanity at their very best and very worst.
Do you like reading? What was the last thing you read?
I absolutely adore reading! I especially love thrillers. The last book I read was "A Good Girl's Guide to Murder"

What’s something you wish to change about the world?
I believe it was Rumi who said "Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world, today I am wise, so I am changing myself ."

Miles to go

I am passionate about Pediatrics. I love children and serving them in the future is something I am greatly looking forward to.
Definitely when I got my acceptance letter to Medical School!

I love to read, catch up on sleep and of course binge watch different series on Netflix.
What do you hate the most?
what triggers you?
If given a choice, what alternate career would you have opted for?
I honestly have no answer for this question. Never considered anything else :)
Finally, a Quote you relate to.
When I was a child, I cared what everyone thought about me.
When I was in my twenties, I did not care what anyone thought about me.
When I was older, I realized no one was thinking about me in the first place.
It's a quote I find very liberating :)
