Discovering My Purpose

I’m sure that I’ve said this before, but I’m going to go ahead and say it again because it’s sooo true: Elective life is the BEST life. I’ve spent the majority of this month rotating through my pediatric rheumatology elective, where I learned an incredible amount of useful information about rheumatologic conditions and how to […]

Senior Status

Christel Wekon-Kemeni, MDPediatrics, PGY-3 I’ve typed that out a few times since transitioning from a second-year to a third-year resident last week and I’m still in awe that I’ve finally made it to this point.

Recalibration.

So as we all know, 2021 is off to a HOT start. Never would I have ever imagined that the disgusting, vile, destructive and maniacal images and videos of the insurrection led by racist domestic terrorists at the United States Capitol on Wednesday, January 6th, 2021 would be something that we all would witness in […]

2020: The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

THIS HAS BEEN ONE HELL OF A YEAR. Like many of you, that’s pretty much the only way I know how concisely sum up this maniacal year. The palpable hope that we all came into the new decade with very quickly devolved into widespread agony, fear and panic as we marched into the first few […]
