About Me

Hello there! I graduated from medical school in 2021 and started residency afterwards. However, I decided to quit earlier this year as it was not the right career for me. During this time, I have enjoyed writing blog posts about my decision to leave medicine and my reflections regarding the process and what led up to it. I truly love writing as a means through which to communicate, teach, inspire, question, as well as to learn. In medical school, I wrote a journal article about mental health as a medical student and in the healthcare profession as well as a couple of nutrition articles for the local newspaper. I look forward to working with you and writing about mental health, medicine, asian culture, and more.
