My Vision of Self and Life
It has always been my dream to become a great physician, more specifically an eye doctor, ever since I was young girl. It would not be wrong to imagine life as one even before I finish my education in college. Sometimes when idle, I daydream of my life around 15 years from now. That would make me around 31 years old.
