I’ve Got Your Back
Florence Yip (2022)
Medicine is beautiful and interesting, but it can also be challenging in many ways. As medical students, we are expected to work hard, test well, be professional and likeable. These expectations throughout medical school can foster emotions like guilt, stress and the feeling of never being enough. I created this piece to remind myself that life is colorful, and that I should be my own best friend and cheerleader. I’ve got my back, and I hope you have yours. I created this piece with pen and acrylic paint. Similar to many of my other works, I combine my love for anatomy and nature to create a piece that is calming to the eye.
