 About the Author

Michelle GoñiMD uses the written word aa powerful voice for her soul. She was raised by an immigrant, Renaissance-like, often stoic father who labeled her creativity as distracting. His rigid parenting and control led Michelle to have a limited and perfectionist mindset. While this helped keep her focused on becoming a medical doctor, it took years to learn to love herself as she was and fully appreciate her journey. We learn about Dr. Goñi’s life in Roses and Thorns, her debut book of prose poetry, where she shares personal yet relatable truths, struggles, and realizations. This unique presentation invites the reader to embrace vulnerability and self-love. Michelle’s words evoke deep emotion within us, empathy for one another, and necessary self-acceptance. Get social with Dr. Goñi on IG | FaceBook | Twitter | Linkedin
