Welcome to Stilettos and Stethoscopes!
The musings of a 22 year old medical student who is studying in England hoping to make the world a better place a little at a time.
A few things to know about me:
- I am a devout Catholic. I am simply someone who was broken and was fixed by an unimaginable force of grace. To say that I’m the perfect example of my faith would be a lie; I am far from perfection. Yet, discovering God’s love has made me the happiest I ever will ever be.
- I have been dancing from a very young age but it was only a few years ago that I began to really appreciate how incredible it makes me feel. I have been doing Bollywood dance ever since I can remember and took up Hip-Hop in year 7.
- Being a humanitarian is something that I have strived for since the age of 10/11 when I watched my first documentary on how AIDS affects children in rural Africa. As a human being and a follower of Christ, I believe that I should live my life serving others. So far, I have volunteered in a number of countries and intend to do more voluntary work over the course of my life in developing countries. My ultimate aim is to work with MSF (Doctors without borders). The work they do in war-torn and/or poverty-stricken countries is absolutely incredible and I would love to be a part of it one day.
- I was born in Oman where I lived the nine years of my life as a carefree child. I moved to England at the age of 9 and have had a rollercoaster of a life up until now. My parents are originally from India (Kerala) and even though I don’t have a lot of ties with that beautiful country, I am very much interested in my history and culture.
This blog is about the journey I take through medical school and beyond. Be prepared to join my experiences of happiness, sadness, anger and every other human emotion that I’m willing to share with you.
