"I’d take flashcards to work with me and whenever I had chance I’d sit and study them", said Russell

According to Russel, he spent just over three years as a security guard.

During the earlier stages of his role, he never had intentions to become a medical doctor because he had no prior exposure to that sort of environment, he intimated.

"I did whatever I could to learn, I asked a surgeon if I could shadow him on shift so he could help me become who I want to be, and I’m grateful he said yes. That was the first real opportunity I got", he said
