Find Your Motivation – Dr. Brandenburg

Nhung Brandenburg, OD, FAAO, Dipl. ABO: “I am motivated to volunteer and remain active in my profession due to three main reasons.

Faith: Many years ago, when my family and I arrived in the U.S. as Vietnamese refugees, we were very fortunate to be able to re-establish our lives in a free country where we have the freedom to choose our careers and determine our own future. In gratitude for the kindness we received, I am strongly motivated to give back to my community and my profession.

Friends: I have thoroughly enjoyed all the friendships I have developed as I volunteer and serve, which motivates me to stay involved and to encourage others to engage.

Fulfillment: Serving and giving back to my community and profession have given me a deep sense of fulfillment as I am given the opportunity to help the less fortunate and influence young leaders, doctors and colleagues to become motivated to serve and become active.”
