December was a whirlwind of a month. I was able to go home, refresh with family, and go back to the ship to begin the tail end of my commitment. I'm grateful for award miles that were able to get me home for the holidays. 

Coming back was bittersweet. On the one hand, I must admit I miss my family a loved ones a lot. On the other hand, I get to continue doing something I LOVE. Getting to see patients like Djazim get discharged and be able to go to school, play soccer, and dance like nobody's business is incredible. Below are some before, middle, and after shots!

In other news, I'm officially published! My photo was featured in the Lancet Medical Journal. It's surreal to see one of your photos in print, and being able to shed light to need of safe surgical care. 

As we go into the new year, I just want to say THANK YOU...for supporting me, and for believing in me. Trust me when I say, this organization is doing great things. Thanks for partnering with us.
