Student Stories

My name is Onyinyechukwu Blessing Nwachukwu I was born in Nigeria and I grew up in Anambra state Nigeria where I also completed my high school obtaining a high school senior certification in 2009. Oftentimes people ask me why did you choose Medicine? Are your parent’s medical doctors? What and who inspired you to become a doctor? these and many more are the questions I have been asked severally from the beginning of my journey in medical school until date. First, I will say every sick person I have met in my entire life has inspired and still inspires me to become a medical doctor. During my high school days, I wasn’t sure of what career path I want to go into but then my interest in biology and being able to understand the human body was high, I wanted to help humanity in a very special way. Also, there was something about being around a sick person, anytime I find myself around a sick person all I want to do is help, I always see myself being devastated when it seems I can’t do anything to help. 

I started participating and volunteering in the Nigerian Red Cross society whose purpose is to protect life and health and to ensure respect for humans. This gave me more insight into the fact that choosing medicine as a career path will not only help me achieve my goal of helping protect, and save lives but will also bring fulfilment to me. This quest to help humans stay healthy and happy became a lifelong interest for me and choosing Medicine as a career path became fulfilling for me as this will enable me to achieve this. Becoming a medical doctor is truly a dream come true for me.

My name is Tiffany Jezek, I live mostly in South Florida, and am the mother of 2 kids. My journey into medicine began early.
I remember being fascinated with a pediatric medicine book my mom had when I was about 4 years old; however, I knew I
wanted to be a doctor when I was 11 and had developed a heart arrhythmia. I was diagnosed with ectopic atrial
tachycardia by a fresh out of residency female pediatric cardiologist, Dr. Kao. I developed such an appreciation for her
kindness that I aspired to be like her one day. I even wrote in my 5th-grade yearbook, “When I grow up I want to be a
pediatric cardiologist,” which was quite different from my friends who dreamt of being like their childhood heroes from
television and sports.

Life went on, at some point, I decided I was not cut out to become a doctor, and I completely forgot about that small line
under my 5th-grade picture that spoke into existence my presumed future profession. I became a nurse and enjoyed it well
enough. I worked on a cardiac stepdown unit and eventually in the ER. I loved what I did, but felt a persistent growing
desire to become a doctor. By the time I applied to medical school I was 1 year out of being divorced, a homeowner,
working 2 jobs, and raising 2 kids (then 6 and 3 years old). Perfect time to throw medical school into the mix, no?
Incidentally, a few weeks after receiving my acceptance letter I stumbled across my 5th-grade yearbook. I was surprised
that I had forgotten what I wrote and smiled at the thought that my childhood dream was actually coming true.

My name is Rolan Kumar Persaud. Born and raised in De Hoop, Mahaica a quaint village in the countryside of Guyana, South America. From a young age I was always intrigued and fascinated by the mechanics of the human body and how it functions as a whole and how intricate it would be to take a peek behind the curtain to fix any condition through medical means. As I progressed through the educational system namely my years in high school this desire increased and started to soar as I entered my high school educational system and was placed into the sciences where a greater fondness for biology was born. After graduating from high school in 2012 I was in a state of limbo because I did not know how I would be able to pursue a career in the medical sciences because finances were the biggest hurdle for me as I had a single parent for which to depend upon.

Nevertheless, I continued upon my dream of becoming a medical doctor with help from family for which I will forever be grateful. But this was only half the search as an even greater adversary awaited me which was deciding upon which medical college to enroll in, after all the research and discussions with most colleges I had a call from Dr. OOvid Isaacs of the American International School of Medicine (AISM) in 2013. From the first interaction with him, I knew this was the place for me to nurture my understanding and love of medicine, and so it began my journey into the fascinating world of medicine. The more I learned in basic sciences the more I craved for knowledge into each area of study namely pathology and how the progression of diseases can be studied, with the help and diligence of the lecturers of AISM I was able to keep moving forward and reached new heights towards the completion of my medical degree. Dr. Isaacs will forever have my respect and admiration as my mentor throughout the pre-medical and basics sciences, he would always tell me to always look forward and to never look back, and with those words, I was able to attain that which I have sought after for a long time.
