Bold Points




By the time I was seven years old, my dad moved my siblings and I across the world from Guyana. Due to visa boundaries, my mom could not come with us at the time, and I would set to be the female figure of my household. My sister was one year old, and my brother was eleven. My immigrant father worked two jobs at night to ensure we were stable. So yes, I never planned on going to college because the idea of college felt impossible. But here I am, a pre medical student in hopes of attending medical school next. Some people experience indecisiveness when picking the career they want to pursue, but it has been different for me. If there's one thing I can tell you about my life, everything that I choose to do must be fulfilling, and the love I have to heal, mentor, and, most importantly, provide patient care is found in the role of a doctor that I know will fulfill me.
