This is all about my attempt to become a doctor whilst being a mum to my 2 lovely children aged 8 and 3. Far from being a “typical” medical student, I started medical school in September 2012 without any A-levels and without any doctors or scientists in my family. Being 10 years older than most of the other first years left me wondering what I had let myself in for, but having just passed my first year I am still convinced that I am doing the right thing. Most days I still cannot believe that I am actually at medical school, it seemed like such an impossible dream. Fingers crossed in 4 years from now I will be graduating as a doctor, this is my journey………………..
