"Getting here wasn’t this easy. Five years ago, I applied to 15 medical schools and was rejected by everyone. I lost friends and some people I thought were 'close folks' then. Some folks even said, 'maybe it's not the will of the Lord for you.' But I didn’t give up," he recalls.
After that, he decided to take a break from his applications and focused on developing other aspects of his life before bouncing back. Within that 'break time', Shadrack recalls achieving other stupendous feats.
"So, I proceeded to get two masters from Penn and Yale, graduating with top prizes, win the prestigious Gates-Cambridge to do a PhD at Cambridge, publish 12+ manuscripts in 2 years and be awarded an Honorary Doctor of Science Degree from a top 25 U.K university," he said.
