I am pursuing my dream of becoming a pediatrician which will acquaint me with the skills to focus on the physical, emotional, and social health of infants, children, adolescents, and young adults in Africa. I also hope to be a strong voice behind the improvements in health, educational facilities and the empowerment of girls and women in Africa.
