I'm touched and honoured to receive this MAA Award. I am completely financially independent, and I've found that supporting myself living downtown Toronto, away from home has been quite a burden. This award will go directly towards my tuition, and I feel thankful to have an alumni supporting me through my medical career. I hope one day to be in your shoes so that I may pass this on and continue the generosity. This act of generosity helps me feel supported by the medical community and I feel so thankful to be a part of a profession that provides such a service to each other.
