You have the power within to achieve anything and change the world.
WHAT DO YOU DO?
The only reason why I choose this profession was to bring smiles on people's face and relieve their suffering and in turn play my part in serving humanity.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS FIELD?
I have grown up in an environment filled with Doctors and since my childhood seeing how Doc truly help people in relieving their pain and suffering really empowered me. Since then i was very clear that I wanted to go in medical and become an honest healthcare professional.
My future plans are to pursue Masters in International health and contribute towards improving healthcare system around the world.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK AT & THINK, "I WISH YOUNGER ME WOULD HAVE KNOWN THIS WAS POSSIBLE?"
The kind of challenges I faced as a child were very intense and becoming a healthcare professional always looked like a far off dream to accomplish. No one at home believed that I can ever crack my medical entrances. Cracking all my entrances and getting into a government college and fulfilling my dream was something I feel is huge accomplishment for me that seemed almost impossible back then as a kid.
WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING IN STEM?
To help people through my profession is something that I really look forward to.
BEST ADVICE FOR NEXT GENERATION?
You have the power within to achieve anything and change the world.World is your stage
Just go for it.
