Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that when faced with great odds, nothing in life inspires like a person’s will to succeed.
While it is true nothing is too big to conquer, an unmatchable thirst for success is important. A black American lady, Sotonye, shared a moving story with the Humans of New York on how she got into medical school despite the many obstacles on her way.

She said she had always dreamed of being a doctor since she was little, at a time there were no many female African American doctors around.
Sotonye said that she did not allow her failures in subjects like Chemistry and people’s opinion to stop her as she soldiered on.
Getting into medical school was not an easy ride as she lost money and had to cope with working 20 hours a week! Despite the fact that she had spent a huge amount of $2200 (N807,400) on applications, she failed several times.
She said she later enrolled herself into a master’s program just to prove that she could study medicine and again took the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
