Growing up I have always been inquisitive about how the human body function this has lead me to pursue my undergraduate degree in medical sciences. As a medical science undergraduate, my passion for research grew more as I wanted to gain deeper understanding on how the human body function and how different diseases disturb the normal human body mechanism. Then I decided to pursue my postgraduate studies. As a young scientist, I have also been trying to network with other scientists around the world and I came across STEM which I believe is the best platform to keep me motivated and connected with potential collaborators.
None so far.
Coming from a disadvantage background motivated me to believe in myself and in my potential.
By promoting what is being done in Africa, e.g African research. By motivating our youth using successful African people, by sharing beautiful African stories and achievements from African People.
To believe in themselves, work hard and smart and always be willing to learn new things, respect and be humble and mostly to be self-motivated.
I am currently working on the association of HIV infection with Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy by focusing on immune markers and associated gene polymorphisms.
