I am deeply influenced by the twelve tenets of PCGS: Decorum, Honesty, Diligence, Simplicity, Respectful, Gratitude, Ethical behaviour, Self-discipline, Self-reliance, Helpful, Solidarity and Fearlessness. So strong is the influence of school motto of “Decorum, Honesty, Diligence and Simplicity”, that I not only practice it myself but have also imparted these principles to my family and my team in the hospital. My early education at PCGS was one of the most important turning points in my life. It has transformed me from an unruly, lively and tireless schoolgirl into a dignified, loyal and diligent doctor, which has resulted in a positive impact towards my community and those that I serve. I am, always have been, and always will be proud of PCGS.
