What do you do?

What’s the best part of your profession? What made you choose this profession?
The best part is being able to help people improve their lifestyle and inform them about everything they need to know regarding any diseases they have or how to prevent certain diseases.
Do you like reading? What was the last thing you read?
Yes, I like reading. The last thing I read is called "The Power of Now."

Rice, beans, and meat.

Responsible and charismatic.

Mention your least favorite subjects.
I love all of them, but if I have to choose one, it would be math.
What is your subject?
I love physics and chemistry, and in the context of my career, I have a great interest in neurology and psychiatry.
How would you explain what a cell is to your six-year-old nephew?
A cell is a small space in which people who do something that goes against the law are held indefinitely in some cases.
Would you go camping or glamping?
I would go camping.
Are you a leader or follower?
I think I am both. In the field of medicine, as a student, you need to act as a leader and take initiative on certain occasions. However, you also have to be a constant learner, so in that aspect, I would be a follower.
When I finished the curriculum of subjects for my medical degree and knew that I would be entering the rotating internship.
If you could be any animal what would you choose and why?
I would choose the butterfly because it starts as a small caterpillar and lives in its own world. But at a certain point, it undergoes metamorphosis and becomes a beautiful, big, and strong butterfly.
What do you hate the most?
If given a choice, what alternate career would you have opted for?
The thing is, I can't see myself in any other career than medicine. I've had the idea since I was little, and I've been focused on it ever since.
What is your dream travel destination?
I would like to travel to Dubai.
What would you do if you suddenly became homeless?
Well, it's a difficult situation, but I would try to find a way to overcome it and gather the resources to continue with my medical career, eventually becoming one of the best in the field.
Finally, a quote you relate to:
"Make yourself a priority."
