To honor "International Women's Day" we will be featuring women who inspire us throughout the month.
Claudia Martinez is an overcomer; wearing the hat of being a patient while going to medical school to save lives.
"When a lot of people think of me, they think of Claudia Martinez, a girl with a smile who is always on the go. Constantly kicking butt at everything she does. They also don't see the other side of Claudia. The Claudia who has struggled. Who has struggled to continue medical school, continue through therapy..."

"...Had I not had the journey I've had, I wouldn't be where I'm at today, and be pursuing my career. We all have two lives, and the second one begins when we realize we just have one. There's light at the end of the tunnel, and sometimes, when we don't see it, we have to create it ourselves. It doesn't mean it's not there, and it doesn't mean it's going to be easy to create it, but it's possible."

He said, "Yes, I do, because I want to help other people play baseball because my doctor helped me go back to play baseball." ❤️⚾️ I was like, "Oh, wow." I said, "Well, if you want to be a doctor, I'm going to help you be a doctor."
