Today’s a day of mixed emotions.
If you’ve followed my posts, you can probably concur two things about me:
1. I often look for signs from God.
2. I will return to Ecuador when I complete dental school.
Both of these give me the comfort in saying goodbye to this place that has taught me so much about myself. I know I will not be back here for quite some time, and that is the part that really hurts. The strong conviction I feel to make a difference in this country is one of my driving forces when studying for my DAT and applying to dental school this semester. I’ve never been more certain of anything in my life: this is my calling. Every part of this experience, as well as my first trip, have solidified my passion for the field of dentistry.
I want to give back to those tiny, precious smiles that have unknowlingly inspired my career path.
