So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview:

Think the first thing that helped me was knowing my self-worth, right? Knowing my self-worth. And I don’t mean that in an arrogant way at all, right? I’m a human being. I’m replaceable just like anybody else. But at the same time, as an as a person, as a physician, I do deserve a job environment, a career environment where I can be myself, where I can be quirky, and I am allowed to be a physician, not just a robot.” 

– Dr. Sapna

So once you realize your self-worth and you realize what can work for you, then you were able to bring other people on board and the life change.
– Dr. Rozina

Know what works for you and what you would or would not do, which will help you define boundaries in your personal and professional life and be okay with applying those. I think that is very, very important.

-Dr. Sapna
