Thanks for helping me to pursue my dreams
Wales in London Philanthropic Fund
Beritha is doing PGDip Physician Associate Studies at Sheffield Hallam University to become a Physician Associate and was awarded £1,250 to help with the costs of living, travel and equipment expenses.
“Since the loss of my father to cancer at the age of fifteen, I have had a strong desire for my work to have a positive impact on the lives of others.
Having graduated from Bangor University with a 2.1 in Biomedical Science, I carefully considered my career aspirations and ambitions and concluded that a career as a Physician Associate would provide me with the life-long personal and intellectual challenges that I have been seeking; it will allow me to use her analytical, scientific and communication skills in a caring capacity.
The physician associate course is an intense medical programme which is academically challenging and requires students to undertake more than 1,600 hours of clinical training which will take place in hospitals, medical centres and the community.
As a qualified physician associate (upon completion of this course), I promise to give back to the Wales in London Philanthropic Fund by volunteering my services in any way that I can and making charitable donations to the fund in the hope of helping others like myself. Within society, I hope to provide excellent healthcare to NHS patients and further healthcare education to the public.
I am from humble beginnings and due to my mother’s ill health was unable to work during the summer prior to the course. I will forever be thankful to CFW for awarding me their generous grant which has enabled me to pursue my dream.”
