About Me: 

The concept of helping people in a meaningful way, combined with the utilization of education and learned tools, was what made me decide to pursue medicine.

My strong desire to help those in need helped nurture my desire to become a doctor. In high school I knew I wanted to be involved in healthcare. Growing up in a lower income family without health insurance, I know all too well the value of good health care.

About Me: 

Having my appendix removed at age 12 triggered my interest in medicine. Also, my mother is a physician, although she didn't work during my childhood. I used to go to the basement and read her old textbooks when I was bored at home.

About Me: 

My dad was a GYN Oncologist at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center and I always remember watching 35mm slides of family vacations with the rest of the family and my dad would always put in a tray of pictures of his latest surgeries. You could see how excited he was talking about the cases. I knew he loved it and I thought that I bet I would love that too.

I told my 6th grade teacher that I wanted to become a doctor when I grew up. Maybe what motivated me was my wish to see my mother healthy as she was always sick.
