What is your favorite Endocrine Society memory?
My favorite Endocrine Society memory is when I was selected as the first-ever awardee for the Bardin Wayne C. International travel award. This award is not only for me but to all the people behind it, especially my patient who gave me the opportunity to learn from him and help him in some way. 

What advice would you give for someone looking to become more involved in the Endocrine Society?
Endocrine Society is a prestigious society that helps physicians, not just endocrinologists, in giving out knowledge and innovations that can help them better manage patients.

How has the Endocrine Society supported your professional development/career journey?
As a young doctor and being chosen as the first awardee for the Bardin Wayne travel awards, this not only boosted my confidence as a person, but it also inspired me to keep moving forward into research to look for answers to help in patient management. 

What do you like to do in your spare time?
Before the pandemic, I loved to travel. I want to meet and talk to people and learn different cultures. During this pandemic, I love to watch educational agricultural videos. I dream to have a farm where I can retire in the future.

If you could ask your peers in Endocrinology one question, what would it be?
I am interested to know why of all the medicine specialty, why did you choose endocrinology as a subspecialty?
