“Medical school teaches you how to be 100% person. As a future doctor, you have to be intelligent – of course. You have to be truly devoted, strong, confident yet humble and ready to work harder than you could’ve imagined ‘till now. You have to be striving for perfection, because you can’t afford to be 99% right. You are either 100% right or 100% wrong.”

“Medical school is not a place for smart people. It’s a place for those who are insane enough to dream of it, pray for it, work hard for it, and live for it. It is for those who are crazy enough to want the sense of purpose that fuels their veins. And, if it is insanity, then let it be, for even if it means more sleepless nights, more examinations to pass, more years in the university and more sacrifices to endure, nothing will change. I will keep on choosing this path over and over again even for a hundred more days and a thousand more years. And nothing in this world can stop me from taking an adventure as worth taking as this, even for a million more lifetimes. Medicine is passion. Medicine is hard work. Medicine is life.”
