A Grandmother’s Legacy – Imagine becoming a medical doctor in your 60’s…back in the early 1900’s

“I want you to know that it is never too late to study or to do what you want to do.” Her grandmother told her. After raising her six children, Rima’s grandmother, Tamara, went to university in her 60’s to study medicine although she never practiced as a medical doctor. However, she created a lifelong impression in the mind of the young eleven year old Rima, her first grandchild – that it is never too late to follow your dreams or to learn something new. Rima fondly recollected this memory during a business lunch meeting with her. She spoke with great love of her four daughters, her five grandchildren, women, newcomers to Canada and youth who are very dear to her heart. “I want to leave something better for my grandchildren.” She said reflectively. Her grandmother had a profound impact on her life as she thinks of the legacy she wants to leave behind.
