“[…] taking risks and being honest to yourself is scary sometimes, needs incredible courage. [...] It is the same courage you need to touch other people's lives.”

"I was disillusioned and frustrated by medical education. I was constantly wondering if I was wrong or the others, as most fellow students could not understand that I was - among other things - suffering from lacking contact to patients. And I doubted myself."

"Taking responsibility for [my] education in [my] own hands was a motto I lived up to my entire life."

"Search those who see and nourish the talents you hold deep inside of you."
