“I chose to pursue medicine from a very early age, telling my mother when I was 9 years old that ‘I want to be a children’s doctor’. I recall as a child always being fascinated by my pediatrician and his medical tools, and ‘wanted to grow up to be like him’. I loved science and problem solving and caring for others, so it was a no brainer what I would do as an adult,” said Joyce.
