I spent my Saturday at the HOSA Leadership Conference speaking to a total of 600+ High School students all over Texas about facing adversity with resilience. I wasn’t sure how they would react to my story, but the feedback was incredible. You never know the difference you can make in this world. Each one of us has the power to make a positive impact especially in our future generations. #UTHealthGoals #medschool

Wearing teal for International Trigeminal Neuralgia Awareness Day! 1 of my 6 brain surgeries was for Trigeminal Neuralgia I developed as a complication from a previous brain surgery for Chiari Malformation and Hydrocephalus. Keep fighting my fellow TN warriors! #trigeminalneuralgia #brainsurgery #microvasculardecompression

Sometimes the future changes quickly and completely, and we're left with only the choice of what to do next. We can choose to be afraid of it, to stand there trembling not moving, assuming the worst that can happen or we can step forward into the unknown and assume it will be brilliant. .

Everything is hard before it is easy. Thank you @simvivomedical for this incredible suture simulation kit. 9 months ago I could barely lift my hands off my hospital bed, for months I had to wear these casts on both my hands, but today I was able to place a few sutures. Although it took 20 min for me just to be able to put the gloves on and several hours to place the sutures, I did it. In reality, I won't be able to do surgery as a career like I had planned. Even though I've gained a lot of function back, the functioning in my hands will never go back to normal and is just too limited to perform surgery safely. In addition to the deficits in my hands, some parts of my brain that control motor function, coordination, depth perception and sensation are damaged. My patient's safety is my #1 priority when deciding which specialty I choose, and I've realized there is so many ways to make a difference in the medical field. At the end of the day I will be a doctor, maybe not in the field I worked my entire life to enter, but I will be a doctor. •

After 68 school exams, multiple brain surgeries, feeding tube surgeries, shunt surgeries, hospitalizations, procedures, a stroke and having to re-learn how to do every single task in everyday life, I can finally say I am 1/2 MD. Only 2 years of clinicals left and I will be Dr. Martinez 👩🏻‍⚕️💉💊 #medschool #firstgeneration #medicina #scrubs #brainsurgery #hospital #nurse #premed #studentlife #feedingtube #girlboss #leanin #optionb #seizures #workhard #chiari #physicaltherapy #doctor #medicalstudent #hydrocephalus #nevergiveup #latina #dysphagia #UTHealthGoals

A chronic and invisible illness DOES NOT define who we are, but IT IS a part of our lives that we shouldn't have to hide. Thank you @ladygaga and @selenagomez for being a voice and showing the world that us spoonies can be successful despite our health battles. #chronicillness #hospitallife #invisibleillness #lupus #chiari #trigeminalneuralgia #tetheredbrainstem #medschool #medicina #throwback #surgery #premed #nurse #medicine #uofh #seizures #feedingtube #spreadhope

Well yet another failed attempt to reach our local shelter. I have been trying for days to get there and volunteer especially as medical personnel since they only have one doctor there. The water rose even higher overnight and is more impassable than yesterday from where I live. We are blocked in by water. The rain has continued and the banks are at capacity in our area, some overflowing. Please Harvey go away! Houston can't hold anymore rain. God knows my heart and I know he will get me there eventually to help. It's just hard not being able to make it out to help right now. #prayforhouston #medschool #womeninmedicine #hurricaneharvey #medicina #medicine #latina #nurse #premed

Please stop what you are doing and say a prayer for Houston. We are experiencing the worst flood in history. High water rescues have been happening near my area nonstop and my old high school was turned into a shelter. I have lived in Houston over 20 years and have gone through multiple hurricanes, never have I seen anything like this. Houston is expected to get more rain as the storm is supposed to go back into the gulf, get stronger, and return to hit Houston directly. So many people have been left with nothing but the clothes on their backs. The Red Cross hasn't been able to pass to bring their supplies. I am honored to be a part of a city that has come together to help each other until help arrives. We are strong together, but the devastation is heart breaking. Many areas are only accessible by boat. Thankfully our home in southeast Houston has been ok so far. But just a couple streets down are homes with chest high water completely flooded. I saw people I grew up with and my area on the news all day getting rescued. I tried volunteering at our local shelter, but was not able to pass. At least we were able to donate food, clothes and toiletries yesterday. I will try again later or tomorrow. #prayforhouston

3 years ago I received my white coat. If everything would have gone as planned I'd be in my final year of medical school and applying for residency right now, but instead it will take me 2 extra years to finish my medical degree bc the problems I've had with my health. Since I'm treated at the same hospital I attend school I constantly run into my classmates, them with their white coats on as the physician in training and me with with a hospital band as the patient. When I see them, many times, I've unconsciously buried my head and ashamed, in complete defeat, caught myself staring at my name on my hospital bracelet as if I was a failure, as if my battle with my illness has won, knowing I too should have my white coat on as the physician in training at that moment.....but beautiful girl, don't be so hard on yourself. Look at how far you've come. You are making that little girl proud. The little girl who had a dream to become a doctor. The little girl who believed she could be one of the few female neurosurgeons. The little girl who believed she could help everyone and do anything. The little girl who believed she could change the world, she is in you. Only it's not a dream anymore. You are living it. Maybe not the way you thought you would, but the way God has planned. You are living it. #medschool #nevergiveup #dreambig #medicine #brainsurgery #womeninmedicine #medicina #nurse #hospital #study #premed

Never lose sight of your dreams. The comeback is always stronger than the setback. First day back in the clinic sporting the new Barco One line of scrubs. 6 brain surgeries, 4 feeding tube surgeries, 4 shunt surgeries, a brainstem stroke and countless hospitalizations won't stop this girl. Thanks @barco.uniforms for making me feel like a #girlboss on my first day back. #medschool #barco #medicina #surgery #girlboss #research #feedingtube #doctor #spoonie #disability #premed #medical #optionb #leanin #mcgovernmedicalschool #scrubs #chiari #hospital #houston #instagood #nursepractitioner #premed #physicaltherapy #backtoschool #uofh
