I have been asked by so many of you if I’ll take writing up as a career. Well, to be honest, writing and makeup are my hobbies. Something that I do only when I am bored or free.
Medicine, on the other hand, is bread and butter for me. I will be contributing in a few books this year, might even co-author a book next year in sha Allah, but this profession is something that I imagined myself into, even before I was capable of having a vision!
I grew up in a very modest family with extremely hard working parents who gave me and my brother everything we needed. Seeing my father work so passionately as a clinician is what inspired me to pursue this as a career.
My father told me something when I got into med school, ‘’ Earn money. But not only money’’. And this resonates me and will always do.
I want to empathise with people and treat them. Healing comes only from Allah. And with a firm belief and rock solid faith in my training, I’ll continue medicine as my profession for as long as my health permits.
