Following a loooong semester full of uncertainty caused by the pandemic, James is on a well-deserved break with his college friends in the Bydgoszcz area. He has good reason to celebrate, after all, he is officially a fourth-year student today!
“I didn’t expect this year to be so different. In the beginning of the pandemic, before remote learning started, I did everything I could to not waste time, and studied at home by myself. Once classes resumed, I was able to pass all exams on the first attempt. 😀 Even though this was a challenging period, it did not overwhelm me. In fact, it motivated me and further reinforced that I’m on the right path,” he described.
James spent the last month doing an internship at the Internal Medicine Unit. He was excited to tell us about how he helped doctors do their patient rounds and how his older colleagues explained everything to him. In his free time, he also visited the hospital’s emergency room. He is slowly starting to think about his specialization. He is most interested in cardiac surgery or general surgery but he has 3 more years of hard work before he has to make the decision. We’re so impressed by the transformation he’s undergone and what an independent and responsible young man he’s grown into.
James is now recharging his batteries in nature while we continue to raise the funds for his next semester.👇 We’re already halfway there! 😀
We hope that Christopher’s death, which was an unexpected tragic event for the whole Kasisi, will kick off a chain reaction of good. Because of this, we started the Christopher Sakala Fund. With this fund, we support children being treated on the oncological ward at the hospital in Lusaka.
