My profession means that I have the opportunity to affect patients' lives by increasing their self-esteem. This ability is a blessing and offers great rewards and a sense of accomplishment. My profession has also given me the opportunity to share my experiences with fellow colleagues and to also gain knowledge from them. Both avenues have improved my patients' experiences and results.
