Silent Mentor Program had bring a lots of emotion into me, Not only the training workshop but the whole ceremony. 

I really appreciate how generous is the people out there. They are truly the heroes of our nation - because of them, we are able to produce better doctors. I really learn a lot of new skills and procedures. 

I would say Silent Mentor has change my way of thinking towards people. Even they are no more living, but I was taught to treat them as a human. Turn a loss into a gift.

The Silent Mentor Program has given me a chance to reconnect with my motivation and drive to read medicine. I am reminded yet again that I chose this path not for my own gain nor glory, but to be there to lend a helping hand. To offer a shoulder to cry on. To give some form of comfort to those who are at their most vulnerable point in life. Yes, that is what I strive for and strive to be! A compassionate, empathetic and competent doctor who will be able to treat the patient as a whole and not just the illness. 

The most memorable part of the program for me would be the gratitude ceremony. Just like many others, I was moved to tears particularly during the Silent Mentor’s last message. Even though she was assuring the students to not worry about her as we practice on her offered body. I could hear her voice crack and waver as she still tried to reassure us and convey the importance of not hesitating when learning from her. It really struck a chord with me. Would I ever dare to be that selfless? Can I be that brave? I believe that I will take my first steps in the direction of greatly improving my work ethic after the program. And I owe it all to the Silent Mentors and the organizers! So sincerely, thank you all once again.

In life, the body is something we use to accomplish many things, but we ultimately do not possess it, as it is not permanant. Birth, aging, illness and eventually death - this is the natural course of life and there is only so much that medicine can do when life has reached its end. 

But, what should we do with our body after our death? If we understand that the body is not permanent, we can do something meaningful out of our lives, such as donating it for medical research and education as Silent Mentor.
