Are you excited? Time to scroll down!

1. How did it feel when you found out that you passed the board exam?

IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST MOMENTS OF MY LIFE!!! I was in the middle of praying the rosary when my friend messaged me that the results were out. I was having the worst tremors of my life while having to continue my prayers and looking for my name, at the same time. I cried so bad when I saw my name. Tears of so much joy!!!!! Thank you Lord talaga!!!!

2.Any New Year’s Resolution?

Practice self-care. As simple as lighting a scented candle at night. This would help me accomplish my goals later. (YES! As simple as it may seem. Malaking bagay!)
What are your plans for 2019? Do residency training. Maximize my free time! Go out. Meet new people. Have fun. Stop oversleeping! (new year’s resolution na din ito! Haha)

3. When was the most exciting moment of your life?

My first plane ride? I was too excited to travel to Japan with my friends. Gusto kong umiyak.
