My name is Florência Gade Francisco, born November 8, 2000, in Chimoio, Manica province.

Academic year 2021 was a good year; I faced some difficulties in academic and social ambit but I managed the difficulties and I passed from 2nd year to 3rd year.

Academically I still have a second chance for the 1st block of 2nd year, but I passed other blocks as well as I passed the year.

Socially; I was sick at the end of the first block of 2nd year, that influenced me academically because I did not do the normal block exam and I just did the second chance as the first exam but I did not pass the block.

Academic year 2022 is being turbulent for me because I lost my father at the end of the 1st block of 3rd year so I did not do the block exam. Such loss is affecting me until now; because of that, I have had difficulties to concentrate in my studies but I hope to manage it.



Greetings I hope you’re all fine, I’m fine.

My name is Florência Gade Francisco, born in Chimoio on November 8, 2000, a second-year medical student. Making a small retrospective of the 1st year, the year was good, although I faced many difficulties in the academic sphere due to the covid-19 pandemic, as the classes became online since I did not have enough efficient material to be able to participate in classes and because it was also my first contact with Medicine. This greatly affected my academic performance as the year was atypical. Thanks to God I was able to join my forces and managed to finish the year successfully.

Currently in the second year, right on the eve of the 2.1 exam, I became ill and could not perform the normal exam and I hope to take a recurrence exam in the same block. Overall block 2.2 and the second year are going well. I extend my cordial greetings to all members of DFM in particular Dr Gitta and Dr Harry.

2020 My experience at UCM was very good last year, I passed from the propaedeutic year to the first year of Medicine. I faced many problems principally during the cyclone Idai, but it doesn’t interfere in my studies. In this year I will give my best to pass and to reach my objectives.

I thank DFM for the help after cyclone Idai because was a terrible moment for me, and DFM helped me a lot with my scholar needs. I thank also because DFM is continuing help me to make my dreams come true, I am proud to be member of this foundation.
