Yvonne who also grew up with dreams of being a doctor recounted how she realized that she couldn’t bare the sight or smell of blood. She also flunked organic chemistry.  Not wanting to disappoint her parents, she compromised by obtaining her Master’s in Public Health. “I was supposed to go to med school. I have a masters in public health because I delayed tellin my parents that I wasn’t going to go to med school. After I got my Master’s, I worked in Libe and then finally I was like, ‘Uh, okay so, do you realize that you should not chicken out and tell them what they want you to do is not what you want to do?’ Like, how many degrees can you g before you tell your parents that you’re not goin to med school?”
