What I hope to accomplish in my lifetime: I want to be a caring doctor who always puts the patient’s needs first. Specifically, I aspire to become a compassionate OB-GYN and dedicate my life to improving the health of mothers and the unborn. As an OB-GYN, I yearn to have a positive impact on people from delivering babies to helping patients with breast cancer. I also want to perform research to find a cure for breast cancer.
