|A Brief Introduction||
Originally, I am from Israel. In Israel, after high school, we are required to serve three years in the army. Sometimes, in certain extreme cases, it is possible to be released from this obligation. Since I come from low socioeconomic status, I was discharged from the army. I spent the next three years working 12-16 hours a day, I cooked, cleaned, and probably washed more dishes than there are cells in your body, and frankly, I don’t regret any of it. I did all of it while only one thing kept floating in my mind: I want, and I will enroll in a medical school. I still did not know that I would choose Italy.
After about a year and a half of work, I started researching medical schools abroad. Realizing that admission requirements for medical schools in my country are unrealistic, and figuring that I will probably end up selling both of my kidneys during the way just paying for courses only to improve scores of subjects like history and literature, I changed track and searched in which country In Europe I should study medicine.
|Why are you passionate about what you do?||
“Ever since I was a kid, I wanted to help people.” – This is what you are expecting to hear, isn׳t it?
So yes, this is how I feel. But let׳s be realistic, I am also extremely competitive and always want to be the first in everything, sometimes (or – usually) sacrificing something else as a price.
Some people say it is not healthy, and I never listen to them; these people usually stay behind.
