This is a scripture my mentor of many years gave me before I went in for a big interview. Her name is Dr.James she is an amazing Pediatric ER doc who has been there every step of my journey from the moment she met me a relentlessly passionate 6 year old eager to volunteer and shadow and explain what I thought may be wrong referencing my colorings in the grays anatomy coloring workbook. Before that interview she told me that no matter what happened to go in there and be the woman God made me and to remember that Gods plan is perfect and that He has a beautiful plan for my life one to prosper me and not to harm me one to give me hope and a future. Today as I remembered that interview process I also remembered that God has a plan for my life and regardless of how anything goes in my life from day to day God does have a plan. His plan may not line up with what I thought right away but I know from experience that His plan is always better.
In two years I have grown in so many ways I have had more experiences than I ever thought and have learned more about the beauty in everything in life both the positive and the negative. I am a better woman because of every experience not just the good ones. God is good, trust Him and you will be okay.
Live life without fear, without worry, and without doubt that God has got this. When one door closes trust that it is for a reason and walk through the next door that the Lord provides because he will always provide.
This is one of the important moments in my life and journey that I will never forget. The Lords faithfulness to fulfill His promises.
Working as a student doctor at this GP has been amazing. I see patients from a week old to someone that is 98 years old!
Today I saw a patient who at first looked very healthy. However she had an ovarian cancer that had returned and was very aggressive. With only a few years left at best, our job was to make sure she was comfortable and not living in pain. She was being so strong but shed a little tear at the end of the consultation.. we gave her a hug and it really made me feel how important it is to live every minute you have on this earth to the fullest.
People often think our job is to cure people but I feel like most of the time our job is to help them function the best they can, the best we can.
My beautiful friends who's been with me since day 1 of med school 😊 recently I've been thinking about what specialty I want to go into in the future. ( since we kind of have to know by end of final year) Everything has pros and cons and it's so hard to decide. BUT I have finally decided that I want to become a dermatologist. An occupation I've wanted to do since I was in high school. It's a very competitive field where about only one person gets in from every state every year.... BUT you never know until you try 😊 I'd have more regrets if I didn't even give myself the chance to try to achieve my dream. Never settle. So wish me luck on my long long journey! Haha .
From left: possible future cardiologist, possible future rural GP, possible future dermatologist. Lol

Packing for rural rotation 🙂I'm excited but I'm going to miss home not gonna lie.but it's only 7 weeks so should be all good! Just a little worried people are going to be surprised by the amount of stuff I'm taking with me lol eg. Japanese food... and a rice cooker 😜you all know I can't live without my rice 😂😝#rural#awayrotation#rotation#med#medicine#MD3#md#futuredr#foodie
Say hello to my stethoscope! It's the most basic classic littmann steth you can get but it's my buddy who's always been with me through stressful times at med school. Eg. Clinical OSCE I can still remember the day I went to the medical school campus to buy my first stethoscope with my mum! Haha I felt so "legit" 😝😁 do you guys have any stethoscope stories? What kind of stethoscope buddy do you have? 😊 #stethoscope#medicine#medlyfe#medgoals#story#buddy#futuredr
