From a young age, I wanted to become a doctor. When I was growing up in Taiwan, a close family friend of ours was one of only two female cardiac surgeons in the country. I always looked up to her as a role model, and knew I was going to become a surgeon like her one day.

The thing I love the most about working in pediatrics is that you can change the course of a child’s life before they are even aware of it. The responsibility of accepting a child’s blind trust that you will do your best for them, and providing continuity of that care over the years, is motivating to me.”
