Day 3: Queen Olasubomi Ibidapo #MyMBBSJourney

As I sat to write this, I remembered when I decided to let you take me on a journey…a journey I thought would be short and over in six years.

In the first year, we were not that close…I just had a tip of what touching you felt like…along the way I was nabbed by a fellowship called Medical Science Students fellowship (MSSF) as it was popularly called.. We met people going on the same journey and people going on different journeys…. We related well with them…
Then we decided to see if we should take a step further to the second year…I got tested on the little I knew about the tip of what touching you felt like and I passed…
In the second year …this you called the beginning of a walk to remember…this was all about your foundation…so I learnt about you…so many times I wanted to give up…But God’s Word kept the bond stronger… You tested me on the second year and I passed once again….even though I walked through hell…well I thought I did…

The Third year… I told myself …Subim…you would have fallen in love with another and journeyed with another….why this one?…
I was tested again on what I knew about you…I failed this time…
It was scary…I felt so depressed… It meant I would start all over…learn about this part of you again…
But then…I was given another chance…Yaaayy!! I passed…tears of joy rolled down my cheeks.. I thought you wanted to leave…I thought I was not meant for you…
I passed the test a second time and everything changed

Fourth year…I was taught how to apply what I learnt so far…we became intimate…I started seeing how much learning about you helped so many people… How successful people who embarked on this same journey saved lives… It was so much fun yet I was always tired…
I was tested..but it was simple compared to the previous years because even if I failed I would have moved on to the next year.

Now the fifth year… I could not wait to tell my parents and siblings… Hey people… my fifth year with him.. I am glad he is going to finally propose to me soon…I can’t wait to say Yes…
I learnt in another way…how to help the community with what I had learnt about you… Yeah…I also passed this stage.
Then the year I have been waiting for came…where I get to have your name.
With smile on my face, I bragged to friends and family…guess who is going to be a doctor soon…
a year came…
the end came…I would have said I read like crazy just to pass this exam….
I would have bragged about my strength…
But I had no strength…I am “the Subomi” my colleague,Yetunde spoke of, read her journey for more info…God’s Joy and Peace kept me…He showed me mercy when merit was undeserved…
I wrote the exam…to God be the Glory…I can boldly say I got your name…
MD/DR. Olasubomi IBIDAPO… Emi ni yen mehn…we made it…

Then you whispered
“Hey…this is just the beginning…”…
