Sometimes I think of how to describe myself.
But I know, above all, I am a Muslim first.
And then I am the others that define who I am.
I am a junior doctor. (actually, I will be-again-soon inshaAllah).
I am also a wife. A daughter. A sister.
And the list goes on.
So I've been having a few months of break from working as a jr dr.
I was a House Officer in Leicester, UK, a place that is very close to my heart.
I worked there for a year and had the most amazing time, being a junior doctor over there. I loved it!
And I decided to come back home for good, inshaAllah for the better.
And here I am, weeks away before restarting my career (inshaAllah) as a junior doctor. In good ol' home Malaysia.
It will be different, I know.
The setting is different.
I am different too.
In July 2011, when I started FY1 in UK, I was a fresh graduate, thriving with energy, always keen to learn.
Very excited (also nervous) to start the new job. I was single, my housemates and I lived in a house just 8 minutes walk from the hospital.
And today, I am a wife :) happily married with another jr dr Alhamdulillah.
And. I am pregnant.
Hopefully still thriving with energy and excitement and real passion to work like last time.
But again, it will be different.
The systems back home and in the UK are definitely not the same.
And hope that I can adapt quickly here.
