I would like to share with you guys a story of a friend and former Leicester medical student. He started off at UOL as an undergrad - as current/former applicants we all know the route into Medicine is a difficult one. It takes alot of hard work and dedication even before it begins - he did great at A levels, smashed the interview and landed himself a place at a brilliant Medical school - trust me when I say, he is one smart cookie. However, plot twist - he then dropped out - events in his life and difficulties of the course caught up with him and he dropped out before his 2nd year was even complete.
Its important to remember life is full of surprises. We cannot plan for it all but when things go wrong, do not throw in the towel. He didn't give up - he went abroad, he worked his ass off and today, after him and a few special friends bossed out their final Medical school exams, they graduated! His tears said it all - it's been quite the journey for him but well done to him!
Don't give up - follow your dreams! This post isn't just for medics. It may be a medics story but the principle still applies to every other career choice and dream. "If its not a happy ending, it's not the end" - no matter what hurdles you hit along the way, keep going!
