Commencement Alumni Spotlight
From Alaska to Dominica: A 2019 Alumnus reflects on just how far he’s come – in miles, and milestones
With commencement just a few short weeks away, Stacey Ho’ 19, is taking a well-deserved break to reflect on how far she has come – especially over the last few months, which she described as “one heck of a roller-coaster!”
“Amazing.” “Crazy.” “Wow.” Those are the words Timothy Sobukonla, MD ’19 , used to describe how he feels about graduating from Ross University School of Medicine and getting to be called “doctor” for the very first time.
“I come from a family where I was the first one to get a graduate degree,” she said. “No one has [done] post-doctorate studies and there are no doctors or anything like that. But my perspective was always, why not? What’s stopping me?”
“We are able to go through medical school together,” she said. “It was a different view than I would have had if I had not gone to Ross. We had the mindset that we’re here to become doctors and this is our shot and we’re super grateful to have gotten it,” she said.
“Being the first doctor in my family is an accomplishment that is compounded with so much more – I can’t even fully articulate it – it’s overwhelming and hasn’t fully sunk in yet.
