According to the young doctor, in her first year of senior high school, the said teacher, Mr Michael Ray Simpson, was introduced to her class as the chemistry teacher.
See the full narration below:
He was a Peace Corps volunteer who had been posted to Ruhaimatu's school, and with his training, he was able to bring academics out of its written pages and made them real.
Dr Osman further indicated that the chemistry teacher went the extra mile to push her to perform better and this made her rise to the top of her class.
"He encouraged me to learn so hard and push for my dreams. So from a bad student in class, his encouragement made an impact and I became among the best in my class."
She also mentioned:
"He told me I could make it when I didn't see a possibility. He believed in me when I didn't even believe in myself. I did so well in my final exams and entered medical school. Even with that he would at every point in time want to know my progress in life."
