According to Frimpong, he was so determined to become a medical doctor that even when his friends and loved ones tried to discourage him from pursuing it after many failed attempts, he never gave up.
“I lost friends, and some people I thought were ‘close’.
“Some people even said, ‘Perhaps this is not the Lord’s will for you.’
“But I didn’t give up.
“I trusted God’s word and called schools to see what I could do better. Then I reworked my application and corrected every possible weakness. He narrated.
While waiting for future opportunities, Frimpong decided to take up some other studies and ventured into other fields where he achieved some tremendous achievements, but his passion to become a medical doctor did not go away.
“I decided to study some more to better the tasks (public health and social impact) that God had placed in my hands that day. So, I continued;
-Get 2 Masters from Penn and Yale, graduate with top honors.
-Win the prestigious Gates-Cambridge to do PhD in Cambridge.
-Publish 12+ manuscripts in 2 years.
– Award an Honorary Doctor of Science degree from a top 25 UK university.
And along the way, I founded (in secret) a tech startup that recently completed a multi-million-dollar valuation fundraising! and assumed the role of Chief Science Officer. Frimpong added.
Now, all things being equal, a young man living in a rural village, where good drinking water is a luxury and his mother sells charcoal to provide for the family, becomes the first doctor in his humble family. He advised his followers to never give up on their dreams, stressing that perseverance pays off.
