Bonjour! The name is, Stacy Annette Gonzalez. Welcome to my blog, MED à la MODE. Here you will find the musings of a pre-med student, writing to keep the inner forces of nature in balance while empowering women. I started this blog to document my journey through my pre-medical studies and medical school, to share with you, my thoughts, experiences and challenges as I brave this path. You don’t have to be a prodigy to be a doctor; you will find that hard work and passion is all it takes. And heart….you can’t forget to take that with you. Time will pass no matter what you decide to do; you might as well do it while you are alive. My hope is that this blog will inspire you and guide you to your mission in this world.
Aside from medicine, another of my passions is photography. By sharing the eternalized moments I capture of people, places and nature, I hope to contribute to the culture and lifestyle that our world has cultivated. There is endless amounts of knowledge tucked away in a photograph; “A picture tells a thousand words,” is a quote I stand by. One picture can show you love, grief, happiness, anger, as well as the beauty of our world and the intricate and creative mind that behind it. A photograph is an artifact that you can go back to time and again like a favorite film; gently leaning you back into those times, smells, feelings and memories.
Lastly, I’m a Oeonophile: an individual who enjoys wines. Learning & tasting wines is one of my many favorite past times, because wine carries an abundance of history in a sip. It is also a very cultural and diverse custom which is unifying, that has the potential to add a lot to of vitality to your life in terms of health. So, voila! Here I play the creator to guide & inspire– to make becoming a doctor, taking beautiful images, making a difference & enjoying wine a little less frightening. Follow me on my greatest adventure!
