Dr. Oluwo Adedunmola is a remarkable young woman who has achieved a rare feat: graduating from medical school in Europe while running four successful businesses. She is an inspiration to many young Nigerians who aspire to pursue their dreams despite the challenges they face.
Dr. Oluwo was born and raised in Lagos, Nigeria, where she attended the prestigious Queen’s College. She had always been passionate about medicine and entrepreneurship, and she decided to pursue both at the same time. She applied and got admitted to the University of Debrecen in Hungary, where she enrolled in the six-year medical program.
While studying medicine, Dr. Oluwo did not let her academic workload stop her from exploring her entrepreneurial interests. She started four businesses in different sectors: fashion, beauty, education and health. She is the founder and CEO of Oluwo Couture, a clothing line that specializes in African-inspired designs; Oluwo Beauty, a cosmetics brand that offers natural and organic products; Oluwo Academy, an online platform that provides mentorship and guidance to aspiring medical students; and Oluwo Health, a health consultancy service that connects patients with doctors across the world.
Dr. Oluwo managed to balance her studies and her businesses by being disciplined, organized and focused. She also credits her supportive family, friends and mentors for helping her along the way. She graduated from medical school in June 2021 with honors, and she plans to specialize in neurology. She also intends to expand her businesses and create more opportunities for young Nigerians.
Dr. Oluwo is a shining example of what Nigerian youths can achieve with hard work, determination and creativity. She is one of the few Nigerians who have graduated from medical school in Europe, which is a highly competitive and rigorous process. According to the World Health Organization, Nigeria has only 0.4 physicians per 1,000 people, which is far below the global average of 1.6. Dr. Oluwo’s achievement is therefore not only commendable but also crucial for improving the health sector in Nigeria.
Dr. Oluwo’s story is a testament to the fact that nothing is impossible for those who believe in themselves and their dreams. She has proven that one can excel in both academics and business, and that one can make a positive impact in the world through both fields. She is a role model for many young Nigerians who want to follow their passions and make a difference in their communities.
