I graduated high school 2 years early and while in College, I was able to become the president of my Pre-medical Club. There I shadowed medical doctors, doctor of osteopathic medicine, surgeons, doctors in private practice etc. These were all wonderful experiences, and it just fueled my passion further that medicine was right for me.
While I felt like I found my purpose in life, my health declined. I gained around 80 pounds, I was in an unhealthy relationship, and I felt like no matter what I tried, I couldn’t recover. This is when I made the decision to change my lifestyle. I was able to lose 100 pounds and my health improved rapidly.
