This is how 20 years of my life looks like – the path to becoming a Board Certified Plastic surgeon. It took many unglamorous moments to arrive to what many now may perceive as a glamorous career. Someone asked me recently if I would do it all over again so it made me pause and think about it for a minute. I definitely would do it all over again since I absolutely love my job as a plastic surgeon, my patients, and feel so blessed for my life, but thinking back on all the years of school and tests, and sleepless nights and endless work and self-sacrifice of two surgery residencies, I’m not sure if I could. I believe that the only thing that made me not give up is that I truly loved the path the I had chosen and knew it was my passion and destiny.
