The Public Health Enthusiast, who also served as a former personal assistant to Commissioner of Health in Imo state, stated: “The picture and story they won’t share on #SocialMedia about studying in the United Kingdom: If you are unqualified to practice your profession here or not on scholarship like me, then you might have to take up a Part time Kitchen Assistant job intermittently, like I did today, to add some extra quid to your pocket.
“The funniest part of the job today, was when the boss in the kitchen consulted me to explain why you don’t take antibiotics for common cold (although it’s not a common cold here like in Nigeria). After I moved the stuff on the viral pathology, he asked me, “boy what are you doing here” and I answered, “I’m not licensed to practice medicine in the U.K.” #DignityOfLabour #Humble #BeingReal.”
Ebirim, is currently doing his Master’s programme at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland.
