Despite this, Festus continued to strive towards his goal and was eventually awarded a Full Scholarship to the University of California, Los Angeles, where he finally earned a Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience.
Following his Bachelor’s degree from the University of California, Festus received several acceptance letters to schools such as Northwestern University, Columbia University, University of Texas, University Of Houston and even Cornell University to become a Medical Doctor.
“After various research projects, volunteering, and performing well in school I was ultimately given a full ride scholarship to attend medical school at UCLA. It was there that I found my desire to become an anesthesiologist and had gotten accepted to the residency program in UT Southwestern,” he said.
Festus finally joined the University of Texas UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas as a Medical Doctor. He expressed how pleased he is to take care of patients.
Overall, Festus hopes his triumph will inspire others never to give up on their dreams. “Never give up, really hold on to your dreams, because as long as you’re able to stick through it and persevere, you will accomplish your goals,” he said.
