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.

Now a fifth year Medical student, I think I’m getting a little closer to saving the world in the field of Medicine. I am a smart, young and patient lady who is in love with medical science because it astonishes me every other day.
The scholarship could not have come at a better time than it did. With my dad about to retire it has lessened his thoughts and his burden. I’ve got no stress with regards to my studies and I’m performing better than ever. My family and I will forever be grateful. Long live AforA!!!
