I believe my love for science and the medical field has been passed down to me from my Dad. Some see him as a quirky, introverted, physics major, but to me he is the person who taught me to question both the known and the unknown, and appreciate the complex yet beautiful world we live in. I have never been good at math without having to work extremely hard at it, and the seemingly scattered rules of grammar can frustrate me.
