I knew from a very early age that I wanted to go to college and have a career. It wasn't until my sophomore year in college, though, that I made the decision to pursue medicine -- a career path that would ultimately take 15 years of my life to accomplish. At age 19, however, time was not a concern to me. I had all the time in the world. I never actually sat down to do the math and acknowledge the fact I would be almost 33 years old by the time I finished my training to become an OB/GYN and Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist. I was young, had the whole world at my fingertips and was oblivious to what impact making such a decision would have on my future.
