My parent(s) wanted me to…
My parent(s) wanted me tobecome a doctor. At a very young age, it was expected of me and my siblings to be successful within academics. As we got older, the idea of becoming a doctor was slowly pushed upon us. I genuinely wanted to become a doctor and that was mostly because I wanted to make them proud. My little sister wanted to become a teacher. It wasn't until I became sick at the age of 11 and spent months in the hospital that I changed my mind about becoming a doctor. I watched them work tirelessly helping patients and walking the halls of the hospital. I couldn't imagine myself doing that. Two decades later I am a teacher and my sister is a physician. We completely swapped career goals. As she watched doctors save my life and became inspired, I watched them work themselves to death.
