- A lady has flaunted her siblings on social media, who all happen to be medical doctors

- Social media users expressed surprise at the revelation with many describing them as an inspiration
It is not every time siblings in a family take to the same profession. In cases where it happens, it is usually two, three or five siblings but the Okpaleke family are different.
In a recent social media post, a member of the family shared a picture that had all her five siblings and disclosed that they are all medical doctors.
The lady, Chinyere Okpaleke, who herself is a medical doctor wrote in a LinkedIn post that she would choose her family over celebrity family the Kardashians if she was presented a choice to make.
Chinyere went on to express her belief that her siblings and she are sure to make their parents and ancestors proud.
In the photo, five sibling are sisters and one brother. Her post read in part:
"I know our parents and ancestors are beyond proud! We are exactly what their sacrifices were meant for!"
While many LinkedIn users were stunned to learn that six siblings could take on the same line of profession, others celebrated them.
Eric Singman reacted:
"A beautiful family dedicated to serving humankind. Obviously great parenting, certainly and obviously really good genes. I am certain there were plenty of obstacles in the path of each of these fine folks. I am glad they had the faith, love, mentoring and opportunities to realise their potential."
Onyeka Olisemeka said:
"So inspiring!!! Love love love this. Congratulations Okpalekes!!!"
