After completing my third year of med school, I was completely frustrated. Medicine was not what I thought it would be, and my bubble had been burst. I had decided to quit and that it would be better to go home and be a welder like my dad. However, my mother convinced me to go back to school, and by God's grace my first course of study upon returning was dermatology. Not only was it a joyful experience, but I finally found where my God-given gifts could most be utilized. I had found my calling!
