I hope that all is well with you x

Here is is one of the most heartwarming stories I have seen.  The story of a mum who moved to the US from Ghana and her daughter, who have made history by graduating in medicine in at the same time!  They begin practice at the LSU 1st July this year. 

Cynthia moved to the US from Ghana, and always dreamt of becoming a doctor.  She shelved the idea though aged 23, when she became pregnant with her daughter Jasmine.  Through the years she held on to her dream working as a nurse for years whilst bringing up her daughter.  Jasmine too dreamt of becoming a doctor.  In time she moved to Louisiana to study medicine.  Meanwhile Cynthia decided it was time to make her dreams a reality as her daughter had left home, and moved to St Kitts to the School of Medicine to study.  They supported each other during the tough times, and helped each other with their studies and exams through the years whilst studying at their different locations.

Cynthia graduated with an MD, just as Jasmine received her medical degree.  Cynthia is a doctor of general medicine while Jasmine is a surgeon.  She was ecstatic to find out that she had been assigned to the same hospital as Jasmine in Louisiana.  They are thrilled to be able to work in the same hospital for as long as they would like.  See the video below for more..

I hope you enjoy this inspiring story!  As usual do let me know what you think in the comments below x
