When was the first time you wanted to become a doctor?
I didn’t actually want to become a doctor; but, when I was accepted at the medical school I applied to, I took it as a sign from God and pursued medicine.
What made you decide to become a doctor?
I kept praying to God to let me know what He wanted of me and this was eventually answered.
How did it occur to you that your profession is your calling?
Back in 2000, after living with a Catholic community in Tagaytay for a few months to discern my vocation and briefly staying in Italy for the World Youth Day, I applied to the medical school of choice and was accepted. All these were accompanied with prayers asking God to guide me.
How do you discern and live out the Lasallian core values of faith, service, and communion in your chosen vocation?
After I graduated from medical school, I volunteered to work at a hospital in Africa.
How will you promote to your fellow Lasallians the vocation that you have chosen? What advice can you give them?
Let the voice of God guide you to His will. Constantly work on strengthening your belief in the love of God for you.
