Your favourite subject(s)?
How would you explain what a cell is to your six-year-old nephew? Hey there, buddy! Imagine your body is like a big city, and a cell is like a tiny building that does important jobs. Cells are so small you can't see them without a special microscope. They're like little workers that help your body grow, stay healthy, and do all the cool things you love, like playing, eating, and laughing.
Would you go camping or glamping?
Are you a leader or follower?
Leader but sometimes I choose to be a follower for mental peace.
When I visited Niagara Falls, it was mesmerizing.
If you could be any animal what would you choose and why? I would choose to be a dolphin! Dolphins are incredibly smart, social, and they get to swim and play in the beautiful ocean all day. Plus, they're known for their friendly nature and positive interactions with humans. It sounds like a fun and joyful life!
What do you hate the most?
I wouldn't say that I "hate" things, but I might find challenging moments when dealing with complex medical cases. However, these challenges are opportunities for learning and growth, and they help me become a better healthcare professional.
If given a choice, what alternate career would you have opted for? I would have been a lawyer, that too of the Supreme Court.
What is your dream travel destination?
My dream travel destination would be to explore the stunning landscapes and rich culture of the Netherlands.
What would you do if you suddenly became homeless?
If I suddenly became homeless, I would prioritize finding shelter and basic necessities first. I would reach out to local shelters, social services, and community organizations for support. Connecting with friends and family for temporary assistance could also be important while working to regain stability and explore longer-term solutions.
