As an International Resident Member, which AAOS resources do you use most and why?
I mostly use the Resident Orthopaedic Core Knowledge study material as it provides evidence-based summaries on pertinent topics. I appreciate the well-organized layout of this section, which makes it easier for me to review multiple topics.

What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from? 
“You can’t possibly achieve it unless you try.” -PS

What’s your go-to productivity trick? 
I find that planning for each day or week ahead with the creation of a schedule and/or a list of tasks using the Eisenhower urgent-important matrix is a good way to stay productive. Completing important tasks and ticking them off gives a feeling of satisfaction.  

What’s one thing you’re currently trying to make a habit? 
Exercising! So important. I’m trying to work on doing this more frequently. 

What hobbies do you enjoy in your spare time?
Watching and sometimes playing football. 

Tell us a fun fact about yourself that not many people know?
I used to play drums and bass guitar and was once in three bands simultaneously.
