Meet the mother-and-daughter who beat the odds and graduated medical school together to become doctors
The path to becoming a doctor is not easy.
Dr. Cynthia Kudji and her daughter Jasmine are now graduates of the University of Medicine and Health Sciences (UMHS) St. Kitts and Maine and Louisiana State University LSU, respectively with medical degrees in Family Medicine for Cynthia and General Surgery for Jasmine.
A native of Ghana, the older Dr. Kudji had to put her dreams of becoming a doctor on hold when she found out she was pregnant at the age of 23. To support herself, she became a nurse where she worked as a practitioner before deciding to attend medical school.
