Shadrach Dare, a gentleman who was born and bred in Ghana, has revealed that he became both a doctor and a nurse from an interesting turn of events.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on his personal Facebook handle, Shadrach indicated that his journey to becoming both started with a confusion in 2007.
According to Dr Dare, he got admission to both University of Ghana (UG) and the University of Cape Coast (UCC) in 2007 when he became unsure which way to turn to.

UG offered Shadrach Biological Sciences which could have led him into Medicine depending on his performance after the first year whilst UCC gave him Nursing.
"So I 'settled' for Nursing at UCC. But in Nursing School I made a resolution: to be the best nurse possible" Shadrach recalls.
Subsequently, Shadrach graduated top of his class and won a Commonwealth Scholarship to pursue a Master of Public Health at Glasgow after his national service.
Right after the master's degree, the young man who graduated top of his class again won another Commonwealth Scholarship for a PhD Public Health and graduated at age 28.

"Today I am a Nurse and a Doctor of Public Health. I did not have to choose to be a nurse or doctor. I became both," he adds.
In an equally exciting report by YEN.com.gh, Paris McKenzie, a beautiful Black girl who is only 16, has started her own enterprise in the fashion industry and it is already making history.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Blackbusiness.com, Paris becomes the youngest Black owner of a beauty supply business.
Paris' business was met with great applause on social media as many Black-owned fashion businesses have reportedly folded in recent times.
