Q: Why did you become a doctor?
Well, my parents told me I wanted to be a doctor ever since I started carrying around a Fisher Price medical bag when I was about 4 years old. While I don’t fully recall that, I do remember really admiring my pediatrician growing up. He was a wonderful doctor who really cared about our family and watched me mature. As I grew up, I just gravitated towards helping others. I loved volunteering in the community and at the nearby hospitals. It was such a wonderful feeling to make someone else’s day just a little brighter.
