Wesley Girls alum graduates as medical doctor with record 12 awards


The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology School of Medical Sciences graduation saw a young lady sweep 12 out of 15 awards shattering the initial record which was 8 out of 15.

Fathia Ayodele Kareem, an alum of the Wesley Girls High School, was sworn in today [Saturday] as a medical doctor where she picked up the dozen prizes to the adulation of some on social media. In 2015, the Traffic Avenue on Citi FM welcomed 24-year-old Charles Djugbah who broke the then 40-year old record by raking in 8 out of the 15 available awards at the end of his seven-year- course at the university.

But his record stood for just a year with Fathia setting a new benchmark for future classes. An understandably overjoyed Fathia spoke to citifmonline and expressed her gratitude to God for seeing her through her seven year journey in medicine.

The future is undoubtedly bright for Fathia and she hopes to focus on pediatrics/child care, a field for which she won the Ben Baffoe-Bonnie prize for Child Care.
