My name is Ijeoma Okoye. I’m a first generation American fulfilling every Nigerian parent’s dream–becoming a medical doctor. I’m currently in my FOURTH year of medical school at the Medical College of Georgia. I’ve conquered many med school milestones, but I still have a long way to go! I started this blog after my first year for all current and aspiring health professional students. Our lives are so dedicated to our craft that sometimes we lose balance in our lives. My goal is to share my stories and those of other students about how we are able to deal. Along the way, I hope to share more of myself: my interests, explorations, and personality. This life we chose is honestly a constant balancing act and I hope that you’ll find some insight on how to conquer yours. I hope you enjoy!
