Without mincing words, Toluope Komolafe Oluwafeyisayo made herself and her family proud. She is a first-class graduate of Medicine from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife.
When she was younger, she loved the white coat and the respect that comes with the profession. However, at a point, she had to swap the desire for a higher one; saving lives and nurturing sick bodies back to health.
Talking in an interview she granted recently, Toluope didn’t hold back to thank her parents who groomed her for academic excellence from primary school. And she appreciated their support when she didn’t make the cut at her first UTME.
Nothing good comes easily, success comes at a price. She was kind enough to share the challenges she faced while in school.
Tolulope admitted that Microbiology/Parasitology stretched her but with studying at the right time, watching Youtube videos, and consulting the right sources, she overcame.
Also, she had no life outside medical school and she lost some friends during that period, especially those who are not in her field.
She didn’t hold back to encourage those who look forward to achieving a similar feat.
She advised undergraduates saying ‘understand yourself, understand what works for you in terms of reading pattern, time to read, and even the location that helps you assimilate better.
City Scope Africa recognizes achievers, Tolulope has done well.
