A Nigerian lady identified as Cynthia Chizoba Okoye has fulfilled her dream of becoming a medical doctor following the demise of her father when she was a little girl.
The commissioner for Budget and Economic Planning in Anambra state; Mark Okoye, took to social media to celebrate his younger sister as he revealed she decided to become a medical doctor to help prevent people from dying after their dad passed away when she was 13 years old.
She graduated from Tulane University Medical School and had her residency at the Johns Hopkins University in the United States of America.
Her brother, Mark Okoye wrote;
I remember when dad died, you were 13 years old and you promised us that you’d study medicine to help prevent other families losing their loved ones prematurely.
Difficult times you experienced while writing your MCAT, getting into Tulane University Medical School and OF COURSE, surviving your residency program at John Hopkins University, they’ve all PAID off, darling. All through hard work, persistence, the never-say-die OKOYE attitude and prayers!
Congratulations to the newest medical doctor in town Dr. (Ms.) Cynthia Chizoba Okoye, you deserve all the accolades baby. Even greater accolades reserved for our Mother who did it ALL by herself from 1991 till date.
