Doctor turned Author
Have you ever seen a physician being a novelist ? I won’t say it is weird but this is something very new to me too. I always thought being a Biology student you cannot be a writer but today’s author has my perspective. This amazing person is Khaled Hosseini.
Hosseini, born in Kabul, Afghanistan to a diplomat father because of which he has spent most of this life living in countries like Iran and France and at last when he was 15 his father applied in the political asylum after which they shifted to United States.
Hosseini completed his high from Independence High School, San Jose in 1984 and finished his graduation from Santa Clara University from where he earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology.
After finishing his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology he enrolled in University of California San Diego School of Medicine and earned M.D in 1993 soon after which he completed his residency in internal medicine at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles in 1997.
He used to work as a physician in California and practised medicine for 10 years. After his book “The Kite Runner” was a success he thought of quitting medicine and to be a full-time author.
There is a lot to speak about such a diverse personality, but unfortunately I have to cut it short. His story has surely inspired me a lot and I might someday as well try my hands on writing.
If Khaled Hosseini has inspired you in anyway or maybe his book, do let us know in the comments. Until then stay safe.
