A man with the name Seye Oduyale has achieved great success as he graduated from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. His journey did not come on a silver platter as he had to send out eight school applications before he got admission.

During his application process, Seye quoted his mom as saying: "Send one to Johns Hopkins. You never know what God is capable of."
He also hinted at spending a lot of money to fund his education. Seye thanked his mom and everybody who have made sacrifices for him along the way.

Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za earlier reported that a young man identified as Victor Bamisaye became a medical doctor after facing so many harsh realities in life.
Briefly.co.za came across the medical doctor’s touching story after he shared a post about his life and achievement on his Twitter page. According to Bamisaye, he became an orphan after he lost his father in 2007 and not long after that, his mother also passed away in 2014. The young medical doctor explained that he realized that all was not lost in 2017 after he became a medical doctor.
Victor Bamisaye’s life story does not only teach us to keep fighting for our dreams but also that we can achieve anything with determination no matter the struggles we face.
