María Laura Silva's stories

Esa voz que se había instalado en mi cabeza

That Voice in My Head

Feb 27, 2023

María Laura Silva always wanted to be a doctor. She was presented with many an obstacle as a student of medicine, some of them posed by the crisis facing the country, but that didn’t undermine her determination to graduate.  Still, one day in 2018, while at work as a medical intern at a hospital, she began to ask herself whether she should stay the course.

I was born and raised in the middle of the tropical mountains of Mérida. I wanted to be a writer to tell stories, but I became a doctor to try to change them. I am now a migrant who loves the orange-yellow color of fall and longs for Venezuelan Christmas.
