“Today signifies the culmination of many hardships and sacrifices. A fulfillment of a lifelong ambition.”
Since I am not lucky enough to express my thoughts in a previledge speech, I’m putting it into writing.
As a kid, I just wanted to own a sari sari store because I envied my friends who had pennies and dimes for junkies and sodas on recesses which was extremely scarce on my part at that time. This was my desire.
As I grew up, with the abundant factors, I was sure that my future profession would be connected to the field of Medicine.
Four years ago, I entered Medical School with NOTHING but courage, dream, optimism, and a good head on my shoulders.
Saying that being a medical student is difficult would be an understatement. It was a tough life.
Too much of sleepless nights. Made a room for extra huge medical books with blubbery chapters. Those exams that made me fall to the ground. And other exams that forced me to getting back up. Those nerve wrecking moments while you wait for the final grade.
And finally, clerkship. That 36 hours sleepless duty and having to go retract a three inches roll of fat for three long hours of major surgery, barely awake and with barely enough energy to do so.
That sleepless night by night of juggling several, if not many, deliveries in a blink.
That long qeue of patients in an hourly monitoring.
Those paper works. You may have memorized the TCA cycle and all of the other pathways but these could not help you complete your History, PE, and progress notes and these would not free you from reprimands that were out of your control.
Today signifies the culmination of many hardships and sacrifices. A fulfillment of a lifelong ambition. This is the BEGINNING. The best is yet to come…
