University Results And Graduation
A lot of things have happened since I last updated you all and two of my favourite moments over the last two months were getting my university results and finally graduating. If you read my previous life update post, I mentioned there that I found my exams really hard and this made me really anxious about getting back my results. My personal goal was to get a first class in my biomedical science degree but as results day drew near, I started to lose hope as I thought about all the difficulties I had during the exam season.
However, it is with much joy that I can say now that by God's special grace, I did end up getting a first class. As if that was not enough, I also got a physiology prize for the best essay performance in one of my modules. It was such an overwhelming experience for me as I never expected such favour from God. It really brought me to tears and I know that I definitely did not deserve it but God is good. I also graduated on the 19th of July and officially marked the end of my undergraduate degree. The past three years have been an amazing experience for me and it such an honour to be here and say that all of that is over and I am finally moving on to the next chapter.
My Physician Associate Interview
Some of you who might have followed me from the beginning may know that I have attempted to apply for medicine in the past but failed. Over the past 5 years, I have tried to get into medicine 5 times and it hasn't gone to plan. It has been a roller coaster ride getting to this point but I can finally say that by God's grace, I will be starting my physician associate course at the end of August. If you would like to know about my full journey, then I recommend you watch the videos below.

It still doesn't feel real that I have finally put my Biomedical Science degree behind me. Its the end of that chapter and I have learnt so much over the past three years so I thought I'd share with you some of the things I have learnt. If you want to know more about my experience studying Biomedical science as well as some advice and tips, then you can watch the video below.
Studying Biomedical Science (My Experience And Advice)
I mentioned in my previous post that for the past few months, I have been seeking God regarding being more intentional in ministry. I have learnt that ministry is all about God and committing to never going away from His presence. It is hard and there are daily battles and struggles to deal with but God has been faithful and He has taught me so much about Him. In the videos below, I shared some of the things that God has been teaching me recently.

Publishing My Book
And finally, I bring you all some very exciting news if you haven't heard already. My book -Outpourings Of A Beloved Heart is finally published. This book is a 30 day poetry devotional all about God's love and it is now available on Amazon for you to purchase if you want to. It has been a crazy journey and I still can't believe it has finally happened. God has been faithful and I can't wait to see how He uses this to bring glory to Himself.
