As the fourth female surgeon presiding our honorable Chapter, I feel humbled and honored. As the daughter of a deceased Korean War Veteran and a housewife, I feel pride and loyalty. As a wife, mother, sister, and friend, I feel compassion, motivation, and positive energy. As a Puerto Rican, resilience.
Please Fellows, keep honoring our Chapter with compassion, competence, and excellence as surgeons. Our patients and myself are counting on you.
