Oh how have I've grown...

It's been almost one year post graduation...And life is GREAT...A lot of hard work, long hours...but, OH, How I've grown...
It was worth every tear shed, every prayer prayed, every moment of greatness, every moment of perceived defeat. When you have a burning passion that cannot be extinguished with no amount of know you are on the right path...keep going...don't stop...never give up...

Not, trying to make you believe this was an easy was far from that but is was well worth the struggle. I was just sharing that struggle is a part of life, of success...and do not discount the process, because in that struggle builds character, integrity, strength, and a solid foundation on what you are really made of...My foundation is not made of sand. I refuse to let excuses, circumstances hinder me for achieving that which I believed deep down inside was my destiny, my desire, my hopes, and one of my greatest dreams and achievements...

NOW, this is not the end of this story of triumph...but, ONLY THE BEGINING..THE SKY is THE LIMIT..THE WORLD IS MINE!



  1. Keep pushing! You are an inspiration to more than you know! Congrats again!

  2. I have followed your story, read all your blogs and I am now in Ross going through the same experiences. You have motivated me all long and I am very thankful for that.

  3. I am so proud of you and your accomplisments. Today I myself laid off from career of over 14 years, over 40 PLUS, working entry level position part time with that same company, and a lot of closed doors.Today was especially difficult as I was notified again that was selected for role I interviewed in field. It was a blessing to come across your page as I searched to see if someone like me could even consider becoming a student doctor at my age. Truthfully, I had given up hope. Well, you are inspiration today.
    I hope to follow up in time with my great news.Thank you for sharing a wonderful testimony!!

  4. I aspire to be like you. You are truly an inspiration. Even though i know it's not going to be easy. I will all come back to your page to get inspirations. I will start working towards my goals and aspirations and hope that i will not exceed 34 before i start.
    Enjoy the work you do and just know that you have inspired lots of people. What field would be specialising in?

  5. You inspire me so so much.I am on a similar journey as you and have given me hope. Medical school has always been my passion and now that I finished my undergrad in a different field- my passion for medical school is increasing. I am working at a one of the best accounting firms- which I appreciate, but I do not really have the passion for it. I am looking to see how I can get my pre-reqs ready for MCAT or maybe a postbacc premed program. I need some heavy guidance and do not have anyone to really point me in the right direction
    Are you still based near Houston Texas? I would be honored to have you as my mentor. Am kindly asking if you can be one , pretty please?

  6. Congrats on your journey, Joyce. I'm glad to learn that you're an MD. I remember when you told me that you were going to do it several years ago. Drop me a line, if you can. xk
