Choosing one word to describe myself is extremely difficult but with residency applications coming up, practicing for interviews, and learning how to properly showcase myself I thought that I would start by choosing one word to describe myself.
There are also aspects of my personality that describe me. As I have mentioned before I have tried my best during medical school to stay true to myself and maintain the parts of me that make me Kimia. But thinking back to my journey to get to where I am, what I have accomplished thus far, and my goals for the future, I would stay that the best word to describe me is happy.
I am happy because I never thought that I would be able to overcome the challenges I have faced as a pre-medical student. I am happy because I have been able to complete (almost) four years of medical school. I am happy because I know that I have amazing potential residency programs to apply and (hopefully) interview at. More importantly, I am happy because I have had the privilege of accomplishing everything I had hoped for as a little girl.
If you only had one word to describe yourself, what would you choose?
