My Passion for Healthcare

During my childhood, I was taught that making a difference in someone else’s life is the true purpose of my own life. I saw people in need every day, especially other children just like myself. As a teen camp counselor, there were kids who were physically and mentally challenged and looked at me not for help but just to be one of the regular kids. I found that as I helped them, they taught me what real challenges were and where there were shortcomings in the medicine they received. I then found my passion…to be a doctor that helps all kids just be regular kids.
