I am currently a first year medicine student from Mitchell’s Plain, Cape Town, where my mother is the sole bread winner, supporting a household of 4 occupants.
I completed my BSc Medical bioscience Undergraduate degree-cum laude and BScHons Medical physiology degree-cum laude before finally being accepted to study medicine at stellenbosh university.
Serving my country and the people in the most selfless manner I know how has always been my dream. I have been rejected 7 times for different funding on the basis that medicine is my second undergraduate degree despite achieving excellent academic results. In 2016 I was awarded the Golden key honour society award as well as the Dean’s meri listt award for my undergraduate degree. I completed my undergraduate degree with a final year average of 82%. In 2017 I was awarded the top achiever award in the BScHons Medical physiology class of 2017 and graduated with and average of 82%. All my prior degrees, results and awards bare testimony to how I will not give up on this dream. Receiving financial assistance will open this door and enable me to achieve this dream and serve where I am needed and called.
Help me so that I can help others.
**update: I’ve received funding but donations made will be used for textbooks and miscellaneous items such as scrubs, stethoscope and dissection kit.
