2018:

Studying medicine is a sacrifice but at the same time a deep love for others, due to the greater importance that this area has for people’s lives. As Mozambiqie’s Ministry of Health’s motto says: “Our greatest value is life.” So it is the role of our future health professionals to keep this higher value until God withdraws it from us. One proverb says, “We have an obligation to save everything here that is still susceptible of being saved” (Jorge Dias). Therefore, in order for us to have this ability to save our lives, it is imperative to have scientific knowledge and feelings of humanity towards the patients, which has been my great challenge and that positive results are being achieved. My pedagogical marks reflects my progress and my understanding of what I am learning, which makes me happy because I feel that I am being a doctor for every disease I study. My grandfather always said: “Who eats running, the stomach will suffer.” This makes sense to me: The student path is long but, step by step I will reach the goal: “To be a Doctor with scientific knowledge and humanism“. The time passes quickly: yesterday I began in the preparatory year, today in the fourth year and tomorrow, another doctor for Mozambique. My thanks go to you, Doctor for Mozambique for helping me in all areas of my student career, because nothing would be possible for me without your untiring support, because I would not have alternatives to realize my great dream. and that Doctors for Mozambique will continue to help young Mozambicans who are intelligent and motivated, but without the financial means to realize their dreams.

One of my brothers called Johan is a teacher and another brother called Elias is a policeman. He works in Maputo.

When I was graduated in 2013, in November 27, I went to Maputo to participate in sixth Gala of Education, the event that happened on November 28. I was chosen as the best student of Sofala province. In January 24 of 2014 I invited in selection for scholarships from Doctor for Mozambique Foundation, where I was inquired by persons involved in that foundation. My dream was only studying Medicine and being a Doctor in future. With this help of DMF, my dream finally? will be reached because it’s my professional vocation. Now I start to study the propedeutic year of medicine on February 10. For all members of this foundation, I say thanks, thanks, thank you very much.
