I was born in Ukraine, grew up on the Russian side of Brooklyn, NY. I don't completely identify myself with either the Russians or the Americans. I guess this is the plight of most children who were torn from their familiar environments by the ambitions of their parents 1/2 way through childhood or teenage-hood. In my case it was at the tail end of my childhood. Thus I still got to watch teenage mutant ninja turtles, and sing cheesy camp songs with the english/russian dictionary in tow. Throughout the years, my cultural identify shifted from an american wanna-be to a proud russian, but has lately been overshadowed by my professional identify as a physician. The journey through medicine inevitably changed the way I view people and the world.
