“My grandparents were teachers in New Guinea. My grandfather educated local teachers how to teach all kinds of subjects. They devoted many years of their lives to make a change. My mum even grew up over there so for me it was a logical choice to become a qualified doctor without borders. At the moment I have one more year of education to go and then I’ll be ready to go abroad.”
“What do you think will be the hardest thing about being a doctor abroad?”
“To be in a completely different environment far away from home will be tough. Also being in charge of a large local medical staff is going to be a big challenge. Besides all of that being a doctor without borders can be dangerous. I know that a few doctors in Syria recently got kidnapped.”
