A Message From the Author

Hello there! Welcome to the The HAPPIest MD community! Thank you for your interest and support. I really do appreciate you, and I hope that you will find both the content I am providing and the community I am building meaningful. I look forward to hopefully learning more about you and your journey towards your HAPPIest life! In the meantime, here’s a bit about me and why I do what I do. 

Let's make a pact to live our HAPPIest lives!

In addition to being the author of this blog, I am a newly licensed medical doctor, aspiring social entrepreneur, and just an ordinary person who demands the extraordinary out of life. By the grace of God, I am a first-generation college graduate, Ivy League medical school graduate, and now Obstetrics and Gynecology resident! Getting to this point has been SUCH a long road and this quick summary doesn’t even begin to do my journey thus far justice, but of course, you’ll hear much more about it all through the blog. Ultimately, I credit my commitments to lifelong learning and self-development to inspiration from many sources, including life itself, and I hope to similarly inspire others.

Being the aspiring (but miserably failing) minimalist that I am, I have consolidated my professional and personal goals into one simple but sometimes stubbornly elusive mission - to live my HAPPIest life. I created the H.A.P.P.I. acronym because I truly believe that cultivating Health, Authenticity, Passion, Purpose, and Innovation in their many forms are what it takes to accomplish the mission of leading the HAPPIest life. Of course, “the HAPPIest life” is uniquely defined by and means different things to different people, and such definitions and meanings may change over time. I am actively on a journey toward my HAPPIest life. In doing so, I am determined to openly share what that currently means to me and how it may evolve over time as well as to genuinely support your journey towards your own unique version of the HAPPIest life. Let’s make a pact to be our HAPPIest selves and live our HAPPIest lives!

With Love and HAPPIness,
The HAPPIest MD
