“My grandparents were teachers in New Guinea. My grandfather educated local teachers how to teach all kinds of subjects. They devoted many years of their lives to make a change. My mum even grew up over there so for me it was a logical choice to become a qualified doctor without borders. At the moment I have one more year of education to go and then I’ll be ready to go abroad.”
