New to Forum :)

So I’ve been kind of a lurker for a few months now, but I thought I should go ahead and introduce myself. My name is Melissa and I’m 31 years old. I have a BS in Chemical Engineering and about a year ago I finally decided to pursue my crazy dream of becoming a doctor. I say crazy just because I never imagined at this age I would want to tackle such a daunting career! LOL!

It is so encouraging to see others my age and older traveling this path!

Melissa - welcome! Yes, you are in good company. I usually refer to it as crazy as well since that’s what some folks think (myself included occasionally) —>but it’s a GOOD kind of crazy


Hi and welcome!


I was about the same age as you when I started…yes, it is crazy…but thats half the fun!


Thanks for the welcome! I’m glad I’m not the only one who uses the word crazy! LOL!

Oh, and yes, it is a good crazy
