To complete my training I regularly attend courses and conferences for updating pediatrics.

WHY I WANTED TO BE A PEDIATRICIAN?

My mother always tells me that I worried a lot when I heard a baby crying and I asked her,”Mama, what’s wrong? Will it be OK? Has it got a boo-boo? “ I hold this same driving passion today. I have always been clear about it, I have never had any doubts about my vocation as a doctor and paediatrician, I want to help children avoid any form of suffering.

Now I feel very satisfied and happy that I can realize my dream, which was to cure children in a consultation, where children are happy and come to see me without any fear (my pediatrician terrified me!).  In order to feel completely fulfilled I have developed this project with cooperation between myself and parents at its core, which I believe allows the poorest to also benefit from my knowledge and resources.

Thank you parents for placing your confidence in me.
