Professional goals: To have a fulfilling sporting career and continue enjoying medicine, to work in a specialty that I thoroughly enjoy and one that enables me to practice internationally both in first and third world countries. To eventually teach medicine to young students and encourage them to live balanced lives, as well as making fun of the ones who take themselves too seriously. I would also like to one day coach rowing at my old school, and I hope to never lose my enjoyment of life’s challenges.
