This Instagram Star Is Inspiring Others With Her Message About Being A Successful Doctor And A Wife

Inspirational instagrammer sharing her multitasking secrets

 

Women being multitaskers is a common discussion point. While some celebrate it as a trait only specific to women, others feel it’s a little too much to expect women to be the ones to multitask with all the responsibilities while their male counterparts get celebrated if they choose to contribute even with little things, at home. Either way, when one is able to push themselves to multitask like like a pro, it’s always commendable.

This is the reason why the unique story of Dr. Shirin has NOT surprised us at all.  She is a reason for us to believe that a woman can do it all.

She has experienced the challenging life at medical school and she knows how hectic the life of a doctor can be

But Shirin also advocates her stance that a supporting and loving partner can make the journey easier.

She narrated her story while trying to break the notion that women with a challenging career cannot be good wives

“Yes, Med School is tough and requires hours of dedication and hard work. But, with the love & support of an understanding partner, the journey is only made easier- take it from someone who knows! Since moving to the US, I’ve actually met so many more women who got married (and some who even had kids) during med school. I’m SURE it was very tough to find a healthy balance, but it was certainly possible. ”

She goes on to say, “[t]he notion that females in medicine (or ANY field of work that requires long hours for that matter!) don’t make for great wives or mothers is not only completely incorrect, but it’s also insulting. The sad thing is, this mentality is so prevalent, especially amongst South Asians (from my experience), that young women actually believe it, and are making life & career decisions based on this misconception.

I’m lucky that I had a great role model growing up. My mother. Who not only is a wonderful mother mA, but is also an ED Doctor and the reason I was inspired to become a doctor too!”

She concludes, “[w]hen young girls message me to say I inspire them I honestly feel incredibly honoured (and very undeserving!)[sic], and, if inspiring 1 girl to achieve her goals is the ONLY thing that comes from me starting this page, then I’ll be very happy.”

 

Here’s the post in which she has explained her entire story

Who said you can’t be both? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Since starting my page, I’ve had so many young women message me saying that it’s their dream to apply to MedSchool & become a Doctor, but the ‘problem’ is they want to get married while they’re young, have a family and be an wife/mother. They ask me for advice on what to choose. Career or Family? Doctor or Wife? To them I say, be both. Yes, MedSchool is tough and requires hours of dedication and hard work. But, with the love & support of an understanding partner, the journey is only made easier- take it from someone who knows! Since moving to the US, I’ve actually met so many more women who got married (and some who even had kids) during medschool. I’m SURE it was very tough to find a healthy balance, but it was certainly possible. The notion that females in medicine (or ANY field of work that requires long hours for that matter!) don’t make for great wives or mothers is not only completely incorrect, but it’s also insulting. The sad thing is, this mentality is so prevalent, especially amongst South Asians (from my experience), that young women actually believe it, and are making life & career decisions based on this misconception. I’m lucky that I had a great role model growing up. My mother. Who not only is a wonderful mother mA, but is also an ED Doctor and the reason I was inspired to become a doctor too! #alhamdulillah ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ When young girls message me to say I inspire them I honestly feel incredibly honoured (and very undeserving!), and, if inspiring 1 girl to achieve her goals is the ONLY thing that comes from me starting this page, then I’ll be very happy. I’m tagging just a few (of MANY) women I’ve come across here on IG who inspire ME with their posts about family & medicine and share how they balance them: @clearskindoc @dermy_doctor @storyofstyle @lauralacquer @eyegirlmd @dryazdan @drsaharshafi @primarycaredoc @nabeelapatail @drrupawong @essenceofmed @draishasindhu Share your story or tag someone who inspires you too! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you @nurse.georgie for including me in your #shecanbeboth campaign! I LOVE seeing other women in healthcare unapologetically doing their thing! #womeninmedicine #womenwhoheal

A woman is a mother, daughter and a wife but with this, she can choose whatever career path she wants to. Dr sahiba has truly inspired many of us and has made the people believe that the conflicting roles of an individual cannot be an obstruction in the path of the dreams. Rather, the roles can be made complementary to each other, with the right amount of dedication, hard work, and support from the loved ones.

So, what do you think about this, should women be celebrated for being able to multitask? Let us know in the comments below.
