My friend who is always up for a challenge said, ' if only I had the choice I would go'. I on the other hand just scrolled down the message like every other proposal we had in the past from many mission hospitals. Little did I know that this small ping would change the course of my life in the future to come. That night as I laid down to sleep I couldn’t shake this small ping from my mind.

At that time, I didn’t know the struggles I would have to face to get to the northeast, neither did I realize the gravity of the decision that I have taken. Being young, I sought the wisdom of my foster parents in the hospital I worked in. They encouraged me to follow this exceptional path I have chosen.
