    I am Dr. Divya Bhardwaj, and I recently graduated as an MBBS doctor from Government Medical College, Amritsar, Punjab, India. I am a medical enthusiast and love to learn and explore what I can do to contribute to this beautiful profession. I have worked as a Medical Officer at Fortis Hospital, Mohali for a while. I am keenly interested in doing research work, and I look forward to grabbing opportunities to learn and build my confidence as a researcher.

  2. What’s the best part of your profession? What made you choose this profession?

    ‘Pain is temporary, a Medical Degree is Forever’ In my initial years, I wasn’t sure whether I would be able to justify my profession. I have always been a health enthusiast and dreamed of becoming one! I knew I was hardworking and possessed a good character, which is what you need to be a good doctor! Being a doctor is hard, but at the end of the day, I feel grateful for being called a ‘doctor’ a person who heals others.

  10. What’s something you wish to change about the world?

    ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world.’ Firstly, I believe that if one promises to bring change in their own attitude, then definitely the world will change too! I observe and I feel that we are careless and relentless humans because we are least bothered about our planet Earth and how our every action is harming the environment around us. We are carelessly using our natural resources like water and electricity and are unbothered to save and protect our environment. If we humans wish to bring even a little change then we should definitely focus on using our natural resources cautiously and focus on planting and letting our planet breathe too.

  11. What aspect of your personality would you change if you could?

    I feel I am too sweet. Mean people don’t deserve your sweetness. I really want to bring this change to my personality. I wish I become more practical and aware of people around me and don’t end up hurting myself every time.

    ‘Little Women- Own your story

  13. Which pill would you take? Red or blue Pill?

    Red Pill: You can go to the past with all of your present knowledge.

    Blue Pill: You will skip 20 years of your life with billions of dollars in your bank account

    I would take the Red Pill. I wish I could change things in my past, and I wish I could improve my past performance with more dedication.

  14. What are you passionate about?

    I am passionate about things that make me happy and a better version of myself. The moment we take responsibility for everything in our lives is when we can change anything. I am passionate about learning and grabbing more knowledge about my own medical profession, how can I create a good doctor out of me by being more dedicated and giving!

  15. Best/memorable moment?

    There are so many special moments to remember. When I earned admission to MBBS, this has been my best moment so far.

  16. What do you love to do in your leisure time?

    I love to read motivational books and listen to soulful songs that calm my mind.

  17. What do you hate the most?

    I hate toxic people and people who judge others endlessly without even realizing that they themselves are imperfect. Nobody’s perfect and one should always respect others, no matter what.

  18. How do you keep yourself calm before an exam or any event?

    I pray to the Almighty to bless me with strength and positivity. Deep breathing before an exam helps me to cope with the stress and keeps me calm and focused to give my best.

  19. If given a choice, what alternate career would you have opted for?
