We as mothers have made sacrifices for the best interest of our beloved children. This story about a mother giving up her dream to become a doctor, so she can invest more time with her baby girl is truly inspiring. Keep reading to find out how this mother became a doctor along with her daughter.
This powerful mother and daughter duo doesn’t let anything stop them from achieving their goal to become doctors!
This wonderful mother’s name is Cynthia Kudji. She had always wanted to become a doctor at an early age, but due to her pregnancy at age 23, she held back all her education and prioritized her entire time and energy on her beautiful baby daughter.
Cynthia, after giving birth to her daughter Jasmine, decided that working as a nurse would have to do for the time being. It allowed her to stay in the medical field and keep her mind concentrated on her ambition of becoming a doctor one day.
However, her work paid off big time when Jasmine started to have a passion for medicine as well. It was the biggest news for Cynthia. They both decided to attend medical school and start the next phase of their life in medical school. The only problem was that they’d be going to different schools.
This would be the first time that the mother and daughter pair would be separated by this much space and for this long of a time.
In April, the power duo completed their projects simultaneously and moved on from their particular schools – Cynthia with an M.D. in Family Medicine and Jasmine with an M.D. in General Surgery.
However their story doesn’t end there.
After so much time separated, the mother and daughter duo discovered that they’d both be going to LSU Medical to finish their residency! They discovered this on Match Day which is the day when Medical school graduates realize which medical clinics acknowledged their residency and partnership applications. This makes Cynthia and Jasmine the first mother-daughter duo to move on from clinical school together to a similar emergency clinic.
Their story is an inspiration to all of us. It’s a reminder that no matter what stands in your way, you are always capable of accomplishing your dream. It just takes a lot of hard work, some determination, and, of course, plenty of support from the ones that you love. SHARE this with your friends and family.
