Exactly one year ago today, I wrote my very first blog post ever! It was something that I had always wanted to do, but for whatever reason, I just kept putting it off. I don’t know what made me decide to start a blog at the time that I did, but I knew I wanted to tell my story and hopefully be a source of inspiration for others. My main goal was to inspire pre-medical students from all backgrounds to push forward and accomplish their goals without any inhibitions. I also needed an outlet for my thoughts, and believe it or not, blogging has been a great stress reliever. I started this blog about a month after I was accepted into medical school, and a year later, I am typing this as a first-year medical student! It’s crazy how many changes have occurred in my life since I first started blogging, and I am super excited about the things that I will get to blog about as I continue my journey through medicine. I know everyone reading this probably leads a very busy life, so I really appreciate anyone taking the time to read my thoughts. I hope you all continue to enjoy my posts as much as I enjoy writing them, and as always, thank you for reading!!!!
