My name is Chris and I am 36 years old. A lot has changed over the years but one internal value has stuck...to help people. That is why I became a life coach and counsellor when I left school. The next phase of the journey is to become a medical doctor. To me this is my inner conviction in action. To help people live holistic and healthy lives. Body, soul, and spirit. Medicine is more than just prescribing meds, it is helping those around you to reach the pinnacle of their being and essence of life. This encompasses more than physical health. It includes mental and social health as well. The plan is to qualify as a family physician and help communities overcome socioeconomic factors and illness.
This is why I quit corporate in 2018 and enrolled at the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg as 3rd year medical student; to pursue this inner conviction and put it into action. I need some help to achieve this dream. I am paying for this adventure myself. The total fee includes class and medical equipment.
It is my passion to see each person live a purposeful life and I hope this adventure will inspire people to pursue their passions and dreams with a relentless drive. Who knows, maybe our paths will collide in the near future.
We need to pay it forward...
We need to do life together...
We need to restore community...
We need each other.
*Funds raised will go directly to the University of the Witwatersand*
