I was born and raised in the Malaybalay, Bukidnon, Philippines. Every since I was young, I have always dreamed of becoming a doctor due to one inspiring physician who saved my life. I know its a cliche, but hearing the stories about the incident pushed my initial interest towards a healthcare profession. Nonetheless, it was not until later in high school that I truly dedicated my pursuit towards healthcare; more specially to become an Osteopathic Physician.

I am a big Anime fan. I have seen tons of different Anime; old and new.

I go to gym at least 3 to 4 times a week. Sometimes going 3 days consecutively. Side note: Before weightlifting, I used to weigh less than 100 lbs.

You have to maintain your focus throughout the application process. Set up a detailed and organized schedule when to complete necessary requirements; deadlines are incredibly important. And with that note, Do Not Wait Till Its Due! Always aim to complete your requirements far earlier than its due date. Lastly, include a back-up plan incase things do not go your way – this includes a gap year of working at a hospital or a clinic, it could also be a combination of shadowing and volunteer work, or a Master’s Program.
