As Brazilian, I love my country and my culture, and every time I visit Brazil I know that I am home. However, I am eager to live and to practice medicine in the US. I believe that experiencing a different culture will help me grow, both personally and professionally, and I would truly love to live in a more culturally diverse community, which is know is common in the US.
When I achieve my goal of working as a paediatrician in America, I wish to work in a combination of private and academic practices. I enjoy teaching as I like to share and pass on my knowledge and skills. Ultimately, I would like to subspecialise in the pulmonary area of paediatric medicine. I am motivated towards self-improvement, and wish to always be striving to learn more.
Overall, my main aim is to be a good doctor. I want to be able to contribute positively to my community and to help people. In addition to this I would like to act as a positive role model for my patients, their families and future doctors that I meet in my professional life.
