My name is Khaddijatou Ceesay. I was born in 1992 and study medicine. I live in Kotu South as the second child out of four. My parents are working hard for me and my siblings to have a good life and to go to school. After  high school I volunteered at the hospital in Banjul while waiting to be able to raise money for university. I love caring and helping. and want to become a doctor  to ease and relieve suffering and save lives. I am considering cardiology as my future specialist field.

Fall semester 2016

This has been one of the best semesters that I have had in the UTG so far because I have been relieved of the burden, stress and shame of tuition fee issues.The semester has been hectic but it is going fine so far and I am doing really well in all courses. We had some delays in chemical pathology and virology and we are trying to catch up and complete lectures as well as laboratory practicals before exams. This is the final semester for Pharmacology and laboratory medicine and I’m doing the following courses: Pharmacology, Haematology, Chemical pathology, Anatomical pathology and Microbiology. The
proposed time for the end of semester exams is mid-November after which I have a month to prepare for my part 2 professional exams which is to be in January 2017
