Rozan in 2013
`I am a medical doctor and now studying to become a pediatric in the most important hospital in Northern Israel/Galilee. We treat patients from all ethnic backgrounds, Jews and Arabs alike'.
'Kids are afraid of everything when they come to the hospital. Their challenge to us is to turn their fear into trust. A lot of children with chronic diseases come regularly back to the hospital, so eventually we get a strong bonding. My wish is to make them smile as a result from the cure’.
Rozan now finished her study and works as a pediatric.
