How did you end up in the U.S.?

I have a strong passion and dedication to pediatrics, and I was always certain that pediatrics is my true calling, so I decided to go wherever I need to further my journey. I chose to come to the U.S., Michigan, to achieve this goal and to be the best doctor for my patients.

Why did you choose your specialty?

My passion for becoming a pediatrician developed during my pediatric clerkship. I met many special kids, and I was amazed by the sheer willpower of these children and their unrivaled bravery even during their illness. They always had contagious positivity and playfulness, and I knew then that I would thrive the most in this specialty.


I have great parents, who worked all their life to raise me, and I wouldn't have been able to come this far without their support.

When you’re not working, what do you do for fun?

I am a big fan of Anime, My all-time favorite is Naruto. I also enjoy nature and the outdoors immensely and love to go on hiking trips on weekends.

    What do you love about Hurley and mid-Michigan?

    People here are very kind and welcoming. When I arrived in Michigan, everyone was helpful and provided such great support to me.

    Favorite Film?

    I love watching movies! my favorite one is Shawshank Redemption.

    Favorite quotation?

    Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.
