Don't let anyone tell you you can't. Keep working towards what you want to do.

What do you do?

I am a medical doctor in training with one year left before starting residency and getting my degree

Why did you choose this field?

I have had a skin condition for years and after seeing 25 different doctors I wanted to be the doctor to help children like me going through their skin conditions

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

Making it to medical school and helping kids like me know that their skin is not their defining feature

Why do you love working in STEM?

because it allows for me to make advancements for society and am looking forward to making more changes in the lives of kids like me

Best advice for next generation?

Don't let anyone tell you you can't. Keep working towards what you want to do
