My experiences growing up in Chicago:
Chicago was a great place to grow up. I had a lot of friends, and we would always be outside playing sports or riding our bikes. There was always something to do. My parents were supportive and pushed me to do well in school. I’m glad they did because now I’m a urology doctor. I help people with urinary tract problems and cancers of the reproductive system. I love my job and am grateful to have grown up in such a supportive community.

What I loved most about growing up in Chicago was the sense of community and family I felt everywhere I went.
