There’s no passing week or month that one doesn’t hear about Ghanaian excellence across the world. Dr Allison Adwoa Okru typifies girl power and Ghanaian excellence.
She has become the latest Ghanaian woman to graduate from the Georgetown University School of Medicine in the United States of America.
After years of hard work, she finally completed her degree at the prestigious, internationally renowned research university.
Dr Okru is flying the flag of Ghana high across Africa and the world.
Commenting about her highly laudable academic milestone, Dr Okru told the Ghana Physicians and Surgeons Foundation (GPSF) of North America that her journey was eventful.
“I’m officially Allison O. Taylor MD, MS and what a journey it’s been,”
Just as many graduating students who have been affected by the current state of the world, Dr Okru had hoped for a much better graduation.
“Like the rest of my 2020 colleagues, I’d always envisioned match day and graduation playing out differently, but these past few months have been a constant reminder that we make plans, but God is in control.”
Dr Okru is headed to Duke University Medical Center located in North Carolina for her internal medicine residency. It is one of the best hospitals in the United States of America.
