Med School Reflection

There are some things that you can't put into words. My medical school journey has been one of them. But I will try my best.


There are some things that change you forever. Not only knowledge-wise but as a person. As I await graduation next month, I can truly say that I will never be the same.


Med school: You have transformed me, in ways I didn't know possible. You've stretched me, and challenged me farther than I could ever imagine. You've taken me on an amazing journey through the human body, dissecting every layer of muscle, while also learning what it means to be alive. What I thought was my limits was stretched beyond what I could ever imagine. You have shown me heartbreak, and have been my constant as a put myself together again. You've reminded me of my reason to breathe. You've shown me that I am capable of way more than I give myself credit for. That nothing is really impossible, if you only believe and put in the hard work.

I came, I saw, I cried, I bled, I learned, I loved, I was broken, I healed, I mended, I found myself. I conquered.

May I never forget the lessons you have taught me; the unforgettable journey of becoming Dr. Alleen Daneielle Richards, M.D.
