Medical School Bound!

Congratulations to my writing student Fong Nham, who has recently been accepted to the M.D. Program at the Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine (HWCOM) for the Class of 2021.  Fong is a UCLA graduate and currently works in medical research at City of Hope.  His parents escaped from the brutal Communist regime in Vietnam in 1990 and came to the United States as political refugees. Fong not only demonstrates how hard work can pay off, but he epitomizes the American value of pulling oneself up by his own bootstraps.  He sold handmade jewelry at flea markets while attending UCLA to lessen his educational debt. He will bring his compassion, kindness and discerning mind to the field of medicine, enhancing the health care experience of all he meets.  In other words, he is a fine young man.

Congratulations, Fong, on this wonderful accomplishment.  You will be an exceptional  physician who will make our world a better place.
