Enjoy the journey

“Being Pre-med can be stressful at times, but do not allow yourself to get bogged down with just fulfilling requirements and extracurricular activities. Wanting to be a physician is a beautiful thing and we should all enjoy the path to becoming doctors and cherish the experiences we gain along the way. A great man once said, “Too often we are too focused on the end goal that we do not enjoy the journey.” Try your best to find a balance between your academic life and your social/personal life. Another thing to consider is that you should be doing activities that make you happy and that you enjoy doing, don’t just sign-up for something that you won’t be happy don’t just so that it can go on your resume. We all have the potential to be great in life! Work hard, be great, and enjoy the journey.”- Tolu
