“I love children, they believe in magic, they play pretend. They hope, they cross fingers and they make wishes. That’s what makes them more resilient than adults. They recover faster, survive worse, they believe.”
Growing up it was always a priority in our family to help other people. It was already incorporated into my family’s way of life to help people and the medical profession went well with this philosophy. I pursued Pediatrics as my specialty. I have always loved children and being around children. My chosen profession allows me to alleviate pain and suffering in children as well as foster and promote a healthy life.
