306: Passion with Dr. Susie Sharpe

Your passions are valid. Going through medical school and starting your career may make it seem like anything else is not important. Your passions are important. Listen as Dr. Susie Sharpe shares her story and why she is not just multi-passionate, she instead has two careers.

Dr. Susie has been interested in art since she was very young. She and her family immigrated from Korea right as she was entering high school and she was bullied. A lot. She didn’t yet speak English and she was working on learning more about the country and culture. 

 

She decided to enroll in art and absolutely loved the outlet that it provided her. However, she knew she didn’t want to be a starving artist. She pursued the sciences in college and later obtained her medical degree. 

 

It didn’t take long after starting in medicine to realize that she wanted and needed more. She started creating works of art again and is now a world-renowned artist. Her work is featured in shows all over the world and she has built a career in art and medicine.

“A lot of times, the way out is through.” Dr. Errin Weisman
