Dr. Keitumetse and Boitumelo Molise (23) from Botshabelo near Bloemfontein, have been dreaming of becoming doctors since childhood - especially after their grandfather was very ill with cancer for many years.
"We want to make a difference in people's lives," says Keitumetse on behalf of the two sisters. "The Lord has given us both a gift to add value and well-being to the lives of others. We want to use it to the best of our ability in our profession as doctors. ”
The sisters, who matriculated at Brebner High School, say their big dream was to start studying medicine together and finishing together. "We have held each other responsible from an early age to make sure we both get selection and finish together at the same time."
For them, it is a great blessing to still be able to obtain their degrees despite a challenging final year in 2020. "The year was very challenging," says Keitumetse. "It pushed us to accept and use new learning methods. We had to make the best of the situation, but here we stand in gratitude with the proof that hard work will always be rewarded. ”
Keitumetse says that although the two sisters have been doing everything together since childhood, their interest will eventually branch off into different medical fields. "I feel attracted to gynecology," says Boitumelo, who would like to specialize in this field. For Keitumetse, it is trauma and surgery that get her heart beating and in which she wants to specialize.
She says the winning recipe to their success, despite all the challenges, is to stay focused on what you want to achieve. "Work and work hard for whatever you want to achieve. Never give up, ”says Keitumetse. "The road will always have twists, turns and challenges, but if you keep your eyes on your destination, it will all be worth it."
