It finally happened. After many years, a BS, MD, MBA, and three residency application cycles, I finally secured a residency in Family Medicine. This summer I will start at Hackensack Mountainside Hospital in North New Jersey -- my top choice!
I write this not just to celebrate, but to remind everyone who is struggling with obtaining a #medicalresidency
, that it is possible. It is possible. I believe that hard work, perseverance, humility, and faith can lead to success.
milestone is possible because of many. I met wonderful mentors who encouraged me to dig deeper to find my passions such as #GlobalHealth
! Also, the undying support of my loving parents, brothers, extended family members, close friends and mentors who did not let me give up on my dream.
This year – I have a double match – not only did I match into residency spot but I also am getting married to the love of my life @badartareen
areen in 6 weeks! @badartareen
I am so grateful that you came into my life at the right time (its all about timing) embraced me just the way I was – more than a work in progress! And not only believing in me but telling me “I know a winner when I see one,” when we first met. “I have come to believe that coming true is not the only purpose of a dream. Its most important purpose is to get us in touch with where dreams come from, where passion comes from, where happiness comes from." -Lisa Bue
