Check your privileges

It is surreal to imagine that while I am one more semester till clerkship, there are girls and boys that do not have the same privileges as I do. I want myself to be reminded, that while I’m complaining about how hard the exams are getting, others are battling for basic needs. While I am in my cozy lecture auditorium, others are traveling far and wide across dangerous remote landscapes, just to go to school. We have complained and ranted so much, that we tend to forget about how much we are fortunate. I have heard my parent’s stories during their time, about how hard it was for them to go to school. We all see it in our country, where boys and girls are forced to beg for money instead of knowledge; to work for food, and not self development. And it saddens me that life can be so unfair. So no, I do not take pursuing medicine lightly. I am obtaining it because I am blessed with the opportunity to get an education; to chase my dream. And I’m going to squeeze every drop of this favor and use it to become a doctor, where in one day, I can finally truly join in changing people’s lives.
