As a Sikh, I wake up every morning tying a turban over my head to cover my uncut hair. When I tie my turban, it reminds me to be compassionate and truthful, which are two qualities that I try to embody as a medical student. This piece represents my faith and medicine intertwined into one with both having the same purpose—to serve others.
