When it comes to the skin, I'm fascinated by everything about it. In fact, as many of my friends know, I've wanted to be a dermatologist since I was in junior high. At that time, I was 11 years old and in the 6th grade. We were asked to give our first oral presentation to the class — and I chose to speak about, you guessed it, the skin! I can remember my mother asking me what I was preparing and when I told her, she wanted to know why skin and not a topic that was more fun. My response to her: nothing else is nearly as fun as talking about skin! I still feel the same way today!
