My name is Samira and I am currently an FY1 (junior doctor) in Trauma and Orthopaedics at the Royal Surrey in Guildford. It’s taken me a long old while to get into medicine but I wouldn’t change a thing about my journey. I learn something new every single day and am excited at the prospect that I will always be learning.

Outside of medicine, I love nothing more than to binge watch Netflix shows, and go on long country walks with my family. Because being a doctor takes up a lot of my time, it makes the time outside of medicine that little bit more special.

I hope to one day be flying in a helicopter as a pre-hospital care doctor, taking time out to live in Australia, but who knows what the future holds. One thing that is for certain, is that I’ll always be the biggest supporter of the NHS, and am grateful for every single opportunity it has given me.
