2015 was an exciting year for the Hainsworths, mostly because of Liam. Liam is even more excited for this year because….
His daddy’s going to be a doctor!
In July, we’re going to pack up the moving truck and move out to Glendale, Arizona to start medical school at Midwestern University. We’re excited for a lot of reasons, not least of which is that Mayra’s family lives about 40 minutes away from where we will be.
I had to apply to med school 3 times before I got in! It’s humbling knowing that this is something that so many people want to do but so few actually end up doing it. Mayra and I are definitely proud of the hard work we’ve put in to get here. I know there are many years of hard work still ahead, but I think the fact that we had to work so hard to get this chance makes me all the more grateful and motivated to work.
Also, I really like the school. I interviewed at another school in Arizona too, but I was more impressed with Midwestern, and had a really good feeling about it. I’m super excited to spend the next 4 years there.
We’ve really enjoyed having this nice little interlude in Missouri the past several months. My parents have gotten to spend a lot of time with Liam, and we were able to spend time with my grandma before she passed. She was even able to meet Liam, which was worth it. I was also able to add a few key things to my application that I know helped me get into school. We’re excited to start this new adventure in Arizona!
