My name is Alannah, I’m 17 years old and if you hadn’t already guessed from the title of this blog, I want to be a doctor.
This area, I hope, is a place where I can talk about not only my experiences on my daunting journey into the world of medicine but also relevant news and cool articles or videos that have sparked my attention and hopefully will spark yours as well!
I read a book a few years ago written by a young doctor called Max Pemberton called, ‘Trust Me, I’m a (Junior) Doctor’. Not only was the book hilarious, it really resonated with me and I feel it was at that moment I really wanted to be a doctor. As a school student I’ve always been the one to rip off other people’s plasters or mop up the nosebleed on the floor while some of my classmates go pale/green. Perhaps it is a feeble attempt at humour but this statement; ‘trust me, I want to be a doctor’ is not only a relatively accurate representation of my life but is a phrase I use daily.
I will try and amuse and enlighten my readers and maybe you’ll learn something new! I really hope that I do.
Come back and have a read,
