"Be like water"
Water is able to flow around obstacles, yet it can crash on the shores. In this way, It's all about adapting to the situation.
I apply this philosophy to my school work at the University of California San Diego, internship work for Palomar Health, and my research work for the UCSD School of Medicine.
