Meet some of our students

Ketrina

Ketrina was inspired to study medicine by watching her younger sister suffer from asthma as a child.

"Every time we went to the hospital I saw the passion and I wanted to help them.  I like interacting with patients and seeing them smile."

Ketrina is the third born out of five children.  She is the first of her siblings to attend university.  Her mum and dad divorced when she was young.  Her mum got married again but he has since left because he couldn't manage to raise children who weren't his.  Ketrina was initially supported by a scholarship during her first university years, unfortunately this donor withdrew and she was at risk of dropping out of her training.
