Hector el Father to Become Doctor
8/6/07 - LatinRapper.com news
Reggaeton star HECTOR 'EL FATHER' has announced he will quit
music in the next five years - to become a doctor. The
28-year-old Puerto Rican has always dreamed of studying
medicine and is determined to become a fully fledged doctor by
the time he is 40. El Father intends to walk away from his
singing career to study pediatrics at the Santo Domingo
Medical School in the Dominican Republic.
He says, "This is a goal that, believe me, I'll reach. My
career is at its peak, but I've checked up a lot on this, and
Santo Domingo has one of the best medical schools." He has
already started preparing for working with children, by
injecting his six-year-old diabetic son Joel 'Ticoa Delgado
Carrasquillo with insulin.
El Father adds, "I don't have a problem with blood or needles.
Tico is diabetic and I have to give him his shots, draw blood,
and take care of him. "I love kids. I have 15 nieces and
nephews and I'm very patient. That's why I really like
pediatrics and within five years I'm going to start studying
medicine. I want to be a doctor; I want to be a pediatrician."
