I'm super proud of him and all his success, like to huge extreme. As I wrote this paper I began to realize, it's not just about winning trophies and medals to Gary, it's something way more. With all his success he could have chose to become big headed and cocky person, but he chose to choose the path of being thankful and blessed beyond all things.

Clinical medicine and science are inherently inseparable entities. Scientific advances and discoveries will perpetually influence any career in the medical profession. This was an idea I learned early on during my undergraduate education. However, my own interest in science spans further than using it as a means to an end. The process of developing theories and conducting experiments enthralls me. I not only strive to apply scientific findings to treat my future patients, but also hope to gain inspiration from my patients to advance scientific knowledge. I believe the ideal way to apply my interests, and to best serve my community, is as a physician-scientist. The MD Anderson 1st Year Medical Student Program would offer me the opportunities

One of the motivational things that he said was, " We realize the most important thing in life is how your career moves and touches those around you and how it carries forward to the next generation.

A Turkish proverb states, “ No matter how far you have gone on a wrong road, turn back.” In other words, one mistake doesn’t ruin someone’s life, so don’t be afraid to pick a different path to go down.
