What do you attribute your success to?
Dr. Mestre-Dudley attributes her success to her mother. She says that her mother has always been a very hardworking and independent woman and has instilled those attributes in her. Because of this, she has strived to achieve her goals of becoming a physician, even against all the odds. Everything she has achieved has been due to the support of her mother and also her family. Dr. Mestre-Dudley also attributes her success to her wonderful mentors who have taught her to be a compassionate physician. She says her mentors have taught her the basic knowledge and surgical skills of being an Obgyn, but they have also taught her to think of patients as she would her family, and to always advocate on behalf of her patients.
