Still on the matter of whether I am a doctor…
I have had quizzical looks.
Someone just told me today, on LI… “MD, yeah right”, she wrote…
They have walked past me in the clinic, up to my nurse and asked her if I AM REALLY the doctor.
They have told me they “love” my accent, and they have a neighbor in the projects, who looks just like me.
They have told me just “how young” I look, and how I am not old enough to be the doctor.
They have asked me how come my English is so good and wondered how I got to America…
They have even told me to go back to my country and “stop taking” their jobs…
But still, I stand.
And walk with an exaggerated swing to my hips and a killer swagger…
I AM a doctor, phenomenally.
I AM a pediatrician, a good one.
Yes, I AM.
Dare to walk in my heels?

My name is Dr. Lulu aka The Momatrician. I am a board-certified pediatrician, a mom, and a wife. But in my spare time, I am also a teen coach, physician coach, and dabble in parent coaching as well.
I love helping people. That is why I coach all these different kinds of people.
I am an empath to the core, but I am realizing that compassion is a much better trait to possess, and self-compassion is the ultimate trait of all.
I am a 2020 TEDx and a United Nations speaker.
Besides writing and speaking, one more fun thing I love to do is podcasting (My podcast is called Suicide Pages.) I interview regular people who have been touched by trauma, suicide, or significant mental health challenges.
All three of my books are best sellers. My most recent: How to Teach Your Children About Racism, was born in 2020 in response to the civil unrest following George Floyd's murder.
I try to stay busy, and love working in my garden and reading.
What about you? Who are you? What do you like to do?
Very nice to meet you.
