Limayre Mendoza surprised her parents with her acceptance into medical school, and she used her daughter and a Barbie Doll to break the news.


In a video uploaded to video last week, Mendoza's daughter, Gabby, can be seen giving her grandfather a doctor Barbie doll.

There is a message written on the box that reads:"Mi mami va ser Doctora" ("My mom's going to be a doctor.").

Mendoza's father says, "Seriously?" and jumps up to hug his daughter. Her mother is next, and Mendoza reveals that she received her acceptance letter just the day before.

Check it out:


Speaking to Mashable, Mendoza said she knew she wanted to be a doctor as early as the third grade, adding that "what really solidified my decision was seeing how much medicine impacts the community."

Mendoza's daughter was born when she was 17 and she started college when the girl was a month old:

"They were definitely many challenges. I would use my breaks in between classes to pump breast milk for the next day and of course I worked full time to be able to provide."
"I graduated in 2016 with my bachelors in biology. But unlike a traditional pre med I did not get accepted in a program until almost four years after graduation."
"Prepping for things like the MCAT and shadowing experiences was just something I could not do while in undergrad due to my circumstances."

Mendoza, who is married and now has another child, describes Gabby as her biggest cheerleader:

"The next couple of years are going to be really rigorous and life challenging but Gabby and I have a unique bond because of it. She has witnessed the hours I have had to spend away from her just for this moment but she never reprimands me for it. She's really my biggest cheerleader and is so understanding in spite of her young age."

Mendoza now has cheerleaders from around the globe––her post took off.






And hey, it looks like there's at least one woman on the same path! (Awesome!)


Mendoza was overwhelmed by the responses she received.


Congratulations! We look forward to seeing the words "Dr. Mendoza" in the future!

Reasons to be single #1... you avoid monkeypox, apparently.

Not to be down on love, love is great.

But love doesn't have to be the full journey.

Feel-good dramas and hysterical comedies can leave an indelible impression on audiences and make them want to come back for multiple viewings.

The films with inspiring storylines, brilliant cinematography, or Oscar-worthy performances are the most memorable.

But there are films that have the opposite effect on moviegoers, making them wish they never saw them in the first place, despite critical acclaim in their respective genres.

There's nothing more unsettling than waking up in the middle of the night.

Particularly if what woke you up was a loud, unsettling creepy sound.

The only thing that could make the experience more nightmarish is opening your eyes and seeing something that makes you jump out of bed.

Most of the time, what ends up scaring the living daylights out of us is nothing more than a pile of laundry we forgot to put away or a cat's shadow, and find ourselves laughing about it weeks or even days later

Others however, haven't been so lucky, waking up to discover they were actually in legitimate danger.

People Break Down The Times A Bully Absolutely Went Too Far

Bullying seems to be a concept that has always been around. It comes in all forms, and in varying degrees.

Sometimes, the bullying can be mild and temporary. That doesn't make it okay, but it does make the bullying easier to deal with.

Other times, the bullying is harsh, and can even go too far. Sometimes, that can mean relentless teasing. Othertimes, it can mean that a bully took their torment to a new level, even proceeding into physical violence.

Whatever the case, when bullying goes too far, it sticks with you. Sometimes, you get revenge. Other times, you just deal with it until you can find a solution. Whichever method you choose, you will never forget it.
