I’m finally a doctor!!
Medical school has been, without a doubt, the craziest and longest journey!
I started at Imperial College School of Medicine in 2009. An 18 year old girl from a small town in Hampshire suddenly in Central London at one of the world’s best universities. I remember struggling a lot in first year, feeling really overwhelmed by the workload and frustrated that I couldn’t understand the tube map.
The following six years were FULL of ups and downs and so many moments when I wondered why I even wanted to be a doctor. But by God’s grace, I’m here!
I finished finals at the end of March and then went travelling in the Caribbean and America (blog post to follow!). About a week into my travels, I got the email informing me that I passed all my exams and was officially a doctor.
What followed was a number of celebrations (we basically stretched it out as much as we could haha)…
Final Year Dinner (back in January):
And finally, graduation!!
So I guess, here’s to the rest of my life as Dr Friday Born!
