Notable quotes from Dr. Bangale’s interview:

Things come full circle, and it’s only time that is the witness to that story.
Each piece of our story may not be what society expects it to be, but that’s ok, and we can embrace that.
It’s that external support from your attendings and your fellow residence that fuel you to think that you are able to do it.
You imagine yourself as the success you want to be.
Everyone in the workplace wants to feel validated.
If we can share each other’s light in the world, then we can avoid the darkness.
