      Hi there! I would say that my work is difficult in some respects – I have to wake up really early on some days, travel a lot, and work in some hard to reach areas of the world as part of the research I am doing – but it is also really rewarding and fun too! As a doctor, work can be challenging, but I think the rewards outweigh the difficulties. Both parts of my job (the research and being a doctor) can be challenging in terms of thinking a lot on your feet, problem-solving and tiring, but these are some of the reasons I enjoy my job. The key is to have some balance in life and find people and things that help take your mind of work and relax. Hope that answers your question!
