by Isabel from Medellin
Victoria Angel was born in Medellin, Colombia. She decided she was going to be a doctor when she was 8 years old because her dad was a doctor and she played medicine with his books and pills. Sometimes she helped her dad.
Victoria studied medicine and anesthesiology and worked as a critical care doctor. What she likes about this job is that she gets to work with people that need her to get well and survive their sickness. She works with very sick people who have heart attacks, cancer, respiratory problems, surgeries and more. Sometimes she has problems working because people get so sick and they don´t have cures.
She works some nights, some weekends, and she misses her family a lot, but the sick people need her.
