“From day one, I wanted to be a doctor. My mother definitely put some of those thoughts into my head. As a woman in Iran, she didn’t have much of an opportunity to have an education.”

“I never saw Saving Private Ryan. I can’t watch gore or brutality. And it’s funny because everyone says, ‘But you’re a doctor.’ But when I’m at work, I don’t think about that.”

“It’s a big joke with my friends, but I can’t date a guy who wears really bad jeans. Everything else can be fine, but if he’s wearing tapered jeans or country stone-washed, then it ain’t gonna happen.”
