Democratic Republic of Congo

"A while ago, there was a woman in my neighborhood that had to have a c-section. I wanted to be able to help her and other women like her. It was at that moment I decided I was going to become a surgeon. In this image, I look back on my journey here and remember that I once doubted and feared that I would never achieve my goals—but I grew to understand I can be who I want to be."
