3 Nigerian Siblings Realize Their Dreams Of Becoming Doctors In US by nairaway(m) : 6:59 am On Jul 25
Three Nigerian siblings - Gloria, Victor and Blessing Oyeniyi - who are based in the United States, and have reached an impressive goal of them becoming doctors, say they are the products of parents with big dreams.
"I know people look at us and say, 'Gosh, you're so successful and you've done so much!,'" said Gloria. "The true success is my parents.”
According to FOX 26, the Oyeniyi siblings moved to Texas in 1995. Their parents are Nigerian immigrants. They had to restart their education after moving to the United States.
"We were on welfare for a while, coming back in the U.S and starting back up. My mom was a janitor at her first job when she started back over, and they both went back and got their college degrees and their master's degrees."
For their children, success was the only option.
"They wanted and they aspired for us to be doctors, whether it was medical or professional," said Victor.
"They just wanted us to have that title, and be the best at anything we chose to be.”
Gloria, Victor and Blessing all said that they quickly fell in love with the health care profession, but completing their studies was no easy task.
Blessing, the youngest sibling, said she struggled with pre-medical courses at Harvard University.
"It was very difficult," said Blessing. "It was one of the hardest things I'd ever done. I'd always excelled before that.”
"We're pretty close, so we would just tell each other, 'Listen, we're doing this. We can accomplish this'," said Gloria.
Dr. Gloria Oyeniyi graduated from John P. and Kathrine G. McGovern Medical School at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth). She now works as a mental health professional.
Dr. Blessing Oyeniyi is also a recent McGovern Medical School graduate who is completing her residency in Austin.
Dr. Victor Oyeniyi earned a pharmacy doctorate from Texas Southern University.
