I am Bahram Habibi and I am a doctor who wanted to make a real difference in the world and I detail it all in this website.
When I was growing up, I always wondered what I wanted to do when I grew up and I had many options. I had very supportive parents who told me that I could be whatever I wanted to be.
After graduating from high school, I decided that I wanted to be a doctor because I love the idea of saving the lives of others while doing the important work that would change lives.
Little did I know that my profession would be taking me on a journey that I would never forget.
Puerto Rico Bound
I was going about my normal life helping patients heal and being really happy about what I was accomplishing and then one day I thought to myself, “Bahram Habibi, is what I am doing on a daily basis enough? Am I changing enough lives and making every day count?”
I let those thoughts marinate and didn’t think about it until all the sudden I was watching the news and I saw a horrible sight. It was Hurricane Maria and it was absolutely pounding the people of Puerto Rico.
The people there were begging for help and losing their homes quickly, so I decided that I needed to do something. The next morning, I got on the first flight to PR and the rest was history.
