My name is Farahnaz. I am a dedicated and highly motivated youth on a mission to become a doctor. From a young age, I have always been fascinated by the human body and the immense complexity of medical science. I was a medical student in one of the most well-known and challenging universities in Afghanistan. My passion for medicine was evident in my academic achievements, where I consistently received top grades. Anatomy, Physiology, pharmacology, and pathology were my favorites.
