|Personal History||Annika Mendez was born into a medical family. Her father was a medical researcher and her mother an emergency doctor. She grew up around medicine and showed an aptitude for it from an early age.
Her career and her life appeared to be mapped out in front of her. During medical school, she met Ian Thompson, and began a relationship. The two of them planned to marry after medical school.
A week before the wedding, she found herself doubting the choices she had made. She was following her parents career path with almost no deviation. She found herself doubting her feelings for Ian, perhaps he was just the right fit for the life she had been thinking about.
Annika called off the wedding, and enlisted in Starfleet. They were happy to take a qualified doctor and she decided to forgo officer training and take an enlisted rank in order to get herself away from earth as quickly as possible.
