Question special

As a medical student interested in surgery, the #ILookLikeASurgeon campaign has been very encouraging for me. This campaign has reassured me that I do not have to mold myself into this stereotypical surgeon and I do not need to lose sight of who I am and what kind of surgeon I want to become. How have you stayed "you" through surgical training and in practice? What advice can you give those pursuing a career in surgery and how can we, as future surgeons, challenge and reshape these stereotypes and biases in the field?
