I am a doctor. I am an artist. I am a writer. I am a teacher. I am also a mother, a practitioner of yoga, a spiritual seeker, a wife, a chauffeur, a cook, and a music lover. First and foremost, I am a woman, and like many women, I once thought I had to put myself in a box and choose who to be. But I now accept that, while I am all of these things, no single identity defines me. I am more than what I do. As women, we all struggle with who we really are and whether our lives reflect our most truest selves. I now strive to be authentic, in all aspects of my life, whether I’m healing or painting or writing or teaching, and I encourage others to do the same.
