On the road to Doctorhood

Personal message

My name is Chaandanee Bhayroo. I am 22 years old. I come from a small suburb in the south of Johannesburg known as Lenasia. I am a hard-working student and my education is very important to me. I have obtained 6As and 1B in matric and I have graduated last year with my Honours in Bachelor of Health Science with full distinctions.

I have been accepted to study Medicine, this year, at the University of Witwatersrand through the Graduate Entry Medical Programme.

Unfortunately, my dad has been medically boarded off from work due to diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Since then, my dad’s income has been greatly reduced and only contributes to the needs of the household and as well as the tuition fees of my two younger brothers.

Regardless of the financial circumstances my father has always encouraged me to follow my dreams and pursue a career I desired. However, if I wish to continue my studies, I will have to find funding as it would be impossible for my father to take out further loans and bonds on the house in order to financially support me. The financial burden was never placed on me directly but knowing that my education came at the expense of my father giving up things that he was once able to afford has always made me feel extremely heartbroken.

I will be forever grateful for the sacrifices that he has made for me and I hope to be able to repay him back one day.

I am very passionate about health care and I have developed an appreciation and understanding for the need for healthcare practitioners in South Africa, especially due the current pandemic. It is my dream to become a doctor one day so that I can help as many people to live a long and healthy life.

After my mother died, my dad had undergone a lot of stress of being a single parent resulting in uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. After seeing him suffering with all the associated complications, it inspired me to become a doctor so that I can help patients to live a long and healthy life in order to provide and be there for their families.

In 2018, I had undergone a major surgical procedure to remove a 29cm cyst on my left ovary. I had to take a lot of time off from my studies to recover, thus hindering my academic performance. This experience has also made me realise that I would become better healthcare professional because I would understand the patient’s holistic requirements during such ailments. It is also one of the many reasons I have chosen anatomy as one of my majors.
