Unscramble the Blue Letters

Well, around the same time in ricedsney that this new mother lost her life, I became a mother myself. And even with all of my barckoungd and training in the field, I was taken aback by how little attention was paid to diveeilnrg high-quality maternal health care. And I thought about what that manet, not just for myself but for so many other women. Maybe it's because my dad was a civil rights attorney and my praents were sailcloy conscious and demanded that we stand up for what we believe in. Or the fact that my parents were born in Jamaica, came to the United States and were able to realize the American Dream. Or maybe it was my residency training, where I saw firsthand how poorly so many low-income women of cloor were treated by our healthcare system. For whatever the reason, I felt a responsibility to snatd up, not just for myself, but for all women, and especially those marginalized by our healthcare system. And I decided to focus my career on improving mnaaterl health care.

Original Text

Well, around the same time in residency that this new mother lost her life, I became a mother myself. And even with all of my background and training in the field, I was taken aback by how little attention was paid to delivering high-quality maternal health care. And I thought about what that meant, not just for myself but for so many other women. Maybe it's because my dad was a civil rights attorney and my parents were socially conscious and demanded that we stand up for what we believe in. Or the fact that my parents were born in Jamaica, came to the United States and were able to realize the American Dream. Or maybe it was my residency training, where I saw firsthand how poorly so many low-income women of color were treated by our healthcare system. For whatever the reason, I felt a responsibility to stand up, not just for myself, but for all women, and especially those marginalized by our healthcare system. And I decided to focus my career on improving maternal health care.
