My Passion for Healthcare

Mental disorders are common and debilitating illnesses which affect the very core of humanity, our minds. As John Milton eloquently wrote, “The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” I chose to pursue psychiatry so that I could help support patients through their personal, and often stigmatized, struggles towards recovery.
