I’m doing medicine because I have wanted to it since childhood. I like caring for people and I want to give back to society.
I have to live away from my family so I live in a share-house with my friends near the university.
It is not easy to find the money for fees; my older brother helps me out as he has the means to do so. I would like to be a surgeon; hopefully I will have the means to do so.
I would really like to work in the Congo, wherever they will hire me. I try to study at home and at university. I love medicine!
