Ever since I was in school I always wanted to be a medical doctor. Most of my teachers used to ask me about my future ambitions, and I would always tell them that I wanted to be a doctor. The reason for me wanting to be a doctor was the fact that I liked to the idea of treating people without any charges. To me this was a very humanitarian action to do.

I graduated high school with flying colors, and I was all set to join university and study laboratory science. However, my father strongly rejected the idea of me studying in a school so far away from home. He insisted that I either chose a different major or stay at home. I decided to choose a different major which happened to be chemistry. I convinced myself that after all science is science. I decided that once I finished the chemistry major, I would support myself to study the laboratory science. I worked very hard in chemistry as I was aiming to graduate with honors. However, during the course of my study, I learned my things, which left me very surprised since I did not think that chemistry could contain so much information. In fact, it came to a point that I liked it better than laboratory science. This became a major turning point in my career as I decided to study clinical chemistry instead of laboratory...
