"I knew I wanted to be a surgeon from the time I was ten years old when I underwent surgery for appendicitis. The surgeon taking care of me was a friend of my grandfather, and I remember thinking I wanted to be like him when I grew up. Now I have the most gratifying, difficult, and impactful job I could think of, and I wouldn’t have it any other way."
