It’s never too late to go back to school. I had a ten- year gap, I could’ve been like ‘Oh, I’m too old’, ‘Oh, my English isn’t good enough’, or any other thing but I kept working and I’m still going for more.

It’s so rewarding to help others in a medical way— to have patients regain functions and set new goals for their recovery. The work we do raises spirits and enables patients to achieve new goals they might not even had known were possible.

I want people to know it’s ok to ask for help, even in college. It’s not such an individual thing, of course you become independent, but it’s ok to have people there to guide you. It’s important to have people to help you and share things with.
