The Story

I started studying at University of Debrecen Medical Centre in 2011 to become an Orthopaedic doctor. I left my home (Nigeria) and family in hopes of returning after fulfilling one of my life's long dreams. Earn a  medical degree.

My dad has been my sole sponsor until my 3rd year (2014) when I began incurring tuition debt. It started gradually and I thought it was just a rough patch at the time. Everybody goes through it. But this rough patch got worse. My country's falling economy wasn't helping either.
I managed to convince the school to let me write my 4th year finals amidst my debt issues which they agreed to after much persuasion. I had not paid for the entire session by now. I was counting on my parents who work very hard for my sake.     

After my exams I knew I had to do something about my debt (apart from praying) to help my parents out. I reached out to a lot of charities, NGOs, private organisations for help all to no avail.

Now the school won't let me continue with my studies as they have a policy about debt (One semester at most) which I'd crossed by now. The new semester began on 25th August 2016 but I have a restriction to enrol which will not be lifted until my debt is paid. This is my last clinical year in medical school and most important, as I am going to do my thesis this year after which comes the Internship.

I am a hardworking student, above average and I have always dreamed of contributing the little I can through my profession to lessen the world's pain.

This is my dream, my future and my hardwork of the past 4 years about to become just a dream. I do not want to be thrown out of school.
This is why I need your help.

Thank you as you help me actualise my dream.

Fundraiser Updates

Good day,

Thank you for reading this.
It's been some time since I last updated you about whats been happening. Thank you for everyone who continues to pray for me and wish me well. Schoolwork has kept me very busy which is good because I have not had time to worry about my tuition. Meanwhile not forgetting to do the work about my fundraiser. 

This was not a mistake as truly nothing has been happening as regards the fundraiser and my tuition fees. My parents are still trying on their part of course. Some people have promised to talk to their bosses. All efforts and attempts by email hasn't been fruitful. I have emailed my financial statement to various people and organizations. I also put it here as a photo in my gallery.

As exams are approaching soon, come December, I can't keep it off my mind anymore. I don't want you to give up on me. I am not ready to give up on my dream/medicine. Please keep sharing and tell someone about it to tell another person.
Thank you all very much.

So I received the 1000USD which makes a total of 1,284USD. I'm glad I crossed the thousand line now. 
Thank you for your continued support. 
School is going fine. Everyday December exams get closer. I try not to worry, trusting that by then I've reached my goal.

Please continue sharing and spreading the word. I need my story to get out there.
Thank you all so much!!

Hello everyone,
Thank you to everyone who checked up on me and has continued to pray for me.
This last few weeks, a good friend of my mom's tried to send me 1000USD but there's been issues we're trying to fix. I hoped that by the time I write this I would've received the donation but I haven't as of now. 

I have recieved my financial statement which I uploaded in my gallery. This shows you the state of my finiances at the moment. 
School has been busy. I'm atttending all my classes and preparing for exams and block practices which is coming pretty fast. 
Exams will start in December, by which I hope to have achieved my goal of 24,502USD.
Donations have been slow which is why I need you to not give up and keep sharing and tell anyone who might be able to help me get everyone talking about my fundraiser.
I have not heard from my state government whom I contacted. All of my emails have not been replied. I still send them anyways.  
I'm not giving up yet so please don't give up on me either. 

Have a lovely week ahead.
