Last Friday was my white coat ceremony. It is a ceremony where medical and graduate students not only receive coats, but also take a pledge to use the knowledge we obtain through our respective programs for the good of our communities and mankind. Although I received a coat during my Master's program, this time was special because I was cloaked by a fellow colleague who received her PhD a few years ago. She is a mom of three and knowing she made it through gives me confidence that I too can do it. This transition has been far from easy, but having the shoulders of others that came before me to stand on makes the obstacles that I face scalable and gets me closer to my dream of becoming a fashionista/scientist/PhD :).
