Nigerian-American Lady who dreamt of becoming a doctor since age 9 achieves her dream, makes her mom and family proud

A brilliant Nigerian American Lady, Adeiyewunmi Osinubi who dreamt of becoming a medical doctor at the age of 9 has finally achieved her dream.

Adeiyewunmi Osinubi attended the Brown University Medical School, Rhodes Island, USA. On her 9th birthday, her parent gave her a stethoscope and white coat embroidered with her name to affirm her dream of becoming a doctor.

16 years after, she celebrated becoming a doctor in the United States of America (USA) at the age of 25. Sharing her story on Instagram, she noted that there is something incredibly powerful in having a visual representation of your dreams to look back and meditate on.

She described her mother, who is also a medical doctor as the reason for her becoming a physician and her inspiration.
