Rising from the entropy and suffering in their motherland, a visionary trio, of Zimbabwean USAP students, comprising Dr. Portia Chipendo, Dr. Emmanuel Magara and Dr. Fallon Chipidza have sucessfully graduated from Harvard Medical School as Zimbabwean USAP students .
The three did not let their economic background or standard educational facility backgrounds, hamper their development. Instead they used that as a step to unimaginable heights of achievement including their graduation from Harvard Medical School.
Dr. Fallon Chipidza went to Harare’s Vainona High school, where she received a scholarship that enabled her to complete her A level studies at the Catholic Regina Mundi school in Gweru, Midlands.
At Regina Mundi, Dr. Fallon Chipidza rose to being the school Headgirl , while Dr. Portia Chipendo went to Seke 1 High school in Chitungwiza town.
At Seke 1 High School, Dr. Portia Chipendo received a scholarship that enabled her to progress to Gateway High school before moving on to Wesleyan University.
Dr. Emmanuel Magara rose from Goromonzi and progressed to Oberlin.
This is a moving, powerful and highly uplifting story, infact a strong reminder to all, that if you dare to dream, only the sky, is your limit. It is now everyone’s hope that their success opens doors to many more dreams and achievements globally by Zimbabweans, and that these three successful Harvard Medical School graduates courtesy of the USAP will return to their motherland Zimbabwe, to help rebuild the Service Delivery in Health care.
