When i was little, i was so lucky to have a good doctor (pediatrician) who used to take care of me whenever i was sick or had a vaccine, i was always fascinated by her kindness and how she knows things very well , she had inspired me from my childhood and had gave me the desire to look and to be as she was when i grow up . I had fought for that dream from the primary scholl till i had joined the faculty of medicine and pharmacy of Rabat in the last few years , and here i am one year away from my graduation to be officially a medical doctor . but however , i had never forgot my willness for teaching and sharing with people my knowledge, especially about the medical world.
