How Did You Do It?


As a child, I dreamed of becoming a doctor.  This dream was the driving force behind my educational vision and accomplishments.   I began my residency as a single mother with a newborn.

It’s no secret that the life of a single mother is difficult.  Each day brings fresh challenges and new fears.  The days and nights are precious, but long and sometimes lonely.  Adjusting and readjusting to changing phases and milestones is hard; finding a work/life balance is harder still.

Four years have passed since my residency, and I am often asked how I realized my dream of becoming a doctor while raising my child alone.  My motivational and truthful answer is this: by the grace of God and with self-determination.  I never took my eye off of the prize.  My strategy may have evolved with changing circumstances, but my vision remained the same.
