Be inspired guys, meet Miss Maryam Opeyemi Raji – the youngest graduating
medical student at the College of Medicine, University of Lagos.
She was the one of the graduands celebrated and awarded with certificates on the 11th of June in the University of Lagos. She is 21.
Sharing her story Maryam said “It was my dad’s dream I become a medical doctor.
Unfortunately I lost him at age 8. People around me, especially my mum,
nurtured the dream. She helped me keep the goal, it was very
challenging but having her around kept me focused. Luckily for me, I
finished my secondary education at an early age, and at 15, I gained
admission to study medicine at the University of Lagos. Here I am today,
I am being celebrated as the youngest medical student.”
