The making of the piece you are about to read is deeply personal to me. It took time and love to develop the bonds being placed on display on paper. With it also comes the experience that was learned from these encounters. Each person referred to is unique and provided a lesson to me for my life.
I have very limited professional writing experience and had only written in journals before deciding to take some writing-based English classes in the spring and fall of 2021. My time writing in class brought a lot of insight on how to fine-tune my writing, but it also developed my understanding of how I wanted to write. I want the reader to be immersed in the story, giving so much detail that the reader can feel that they are there. I want to give my writing as much realism as possible, allowing the reader to understand the characters more.
My goal in this piece is to provide the reader with the lessons I learned through my medical experience. Giving them a part of my love for the field and why I will always hold onto these memories close to my heart.
