Mou Jing regularly has a total of three ophthalmologic operations per day. As an assistant, oftentimes she cannot take a rest until 2 pm. When the operations are successfully completed, she quickly takes off her surgical gown and nurses her baby outside the operating room.
Mou “Never” Feels Tired
Mou Jing comes from Enshi, Hubei Province. She was admitted to Harvard Medical School in 2016 and came to the United States with her husband. “Jing has been working in my group,” said her supervisor and mentor Dr. Lucas, “She seldom takes a day off for her study, even if she was pregnant in 2017. She was enrolled full-time in school until her delivery. Many times I am so worried that she overworks, and I sometimes deliberately ‘expel’ her, but she rejects. She is the most excellent, fantastic, and amazing student that I have ever had. Jing is a great mother!”
