Hi everyone ! This is @afromedwoman today I’ll be here to chat about keeping safe with this Delta and answering any burning questions you have on Covid-19 variants or vaccines. Please start to drop your questions below to get us started. More about me 👇🏾
I’m sharing from my perspective as a physician who has worked on the frontline caring for Covid-19 patient here in Singapore and is specialised in public health and pharmaceutical medicine and regulation. I’m also the daughter of a severe Covid-19 survivor in Zim before vaccines
Thanks for getting us started! A: Anything is possible w/ this novel virus but it is rare for people to be infected twice by same variant. Prev infxn w/ other variants does give you some protection but you may still be susceptible to infection with new variants.

I needed to study and have a career related to medical field. The question was how looking at a mixture of combinations that i had. I decided not to apply for anything until i had a plan. My friends started school earlier that year 2016 and i was still home.

I shall not mention save to say that the institute is based in Bethesda, Maryland&one of the universities is based in Massachusetts. As one member of my doctoral committee put it, these are jobs that most American academics dream of and long for but will never have, yet I have 3.
So what have I learnt in this journey.
1. Opportunities are there, if you dare look for them.
2. Even if you feel like you don't deserve or you are not good enough do not disqualify yourself

In 2011 I was offered a job at UZ Medical school as a lecturer in Radiology. At the time, my young sister was the Chairperson of the Sociology dept(she is now the Vice Chancellor of Women's University in Africa). Before I started work at UZ, I visited her&gleaned from her info
about working at the UZ. After that, I also visited professor Nziramasanga who was heading the Teaching and Learning Centre. I asked him. a simple question-what should I do to succeed as a lecturer&become a professor in the fastest possible time. So before I even started work
I had promotion in the cross hairs. One thing that I learnt about career development is that if you serious about climbing the ladder from the first day you must have a plan&you must prepare yourself to acquire the skills needed to succeed in your boss's job. Before I had my 1st
