In a message on Xhe admits that it was difficult to get into medical school because he had been away from his books for a long time.
“I quit my job at the bank in January to pursue my dream of becoming a doctor; many people thought I was delusional.”[The] entrance exam was the hardest thing I had to study for. Not only because of MEDICAL SCHOOL, I haven’t been a student for a while. APRIL 1, 2019 – I’m participating,” he said.
Years after he undertook the brave journey, he has made commendable progress in the medical school.
“November 15, 2023! I’m done; I wrapped the MBChB. I read this tweet and it immediately took me back to 2019: the anxiety, the stress, the internal chaos, the hmmmmm. Look at the work of God in my life, Dr. Joshua Kamal,” he updated his followers on X.
