Jade Okene

PR & Engagement Officer & Medicine Abroad Mentor

Year of Study: Year 5

Medical School: Medical University of Pleven, Bulgaria

Why I joined the MM Team: I believe that it is highly important to educate one another as it is the lack of knowledge that leads to lack of fulfilment in our aspirations; it is not down to our race. Thus, it would be an honour to be part of a movement that is planting the seeds for future leaders within the Afro-Caribbean society. I hope to guide people to not make the same mistakes I had and to ultimately realise that even though you may give up on your dream; your dream does not give up on you.

I can also provide some insight on how to effectively balance being a medic but also exploring other talents that you wish to encounter during your journey; such as travelling.

Interesting Fact: Although I study abroad and I love travelling across the world, I am notorious for missing flights.
