  • Jaachimma Oluwabunmi Nwagbara

    Yes you saw the middle name right. She is Igbo by tribe, from Abia state (having a Yoruba mother). She was born and brought up in Kaduna state and therefore you can say she has been exposed to the three major Nigerian cultures. It gets people fascinated. She is a third year medical student at the University of Ibadan, Oyo state. Before that she attended a few schools, all in Kaduna where she lives, which include, Challawa Nursery, Primary and Secondary School where she got her nursery education, Kingdom Heritage Model School where she attained primary education and the prestigious Zamani College, a school that shaped the person she is now, taught her how to dream big and made her realize she could achieve set goals and of course where she attained her secondary education. Getting into the university took a lot of hard work, discipline, perseverance and of course support especially from her loving mother and my ever helpful teachers. "Studying Medicine is quite demanding, especially if you are one who hates failure and so it is a daily struggle to get through every stage and excel as you get through. I am very much excited to share my journey. I trust it would be insightful!" says Jaachimma.
  • Obeya Mark Onu

    Mark was born at Ugbokolo, Benue State but moved to Lagos at a tender age. He lives with his single mum and is the first of three boys. Changing residence quite often, he attended a lot of schools (all public schools) growing up but eventually finished from Birrel Avenue Senior High School, Sabo Yaba, Lagos. So against all odds he decided he'd be a doctor and inspire others from the slums too. He has had a penchant for writing and classical music since he was a child. He has a soft spot for melancholy in characters or thoughts, and also loves theology, philosophy and politics. He has always believed that everyone one came across was a story waiting to be told. He has also taught at tutorial centres mainly around where he lives, Bariga, hoping to inspire the many other young persons with dreams and untold fantasies but are just scared because of the uncertainties surrounding them, believing that they're not just stories of poverty and neglect but much more.

  • Pendical Admin

    PENDICAL an educational weblog creates a platform for medical personnel/practitioners including medical students to share inspiring stories, lifestyles, and resources for medical personnel/practitioners or anyone aspiring to be a physician thereby encouraging and promoting diversity in lifestyle, mindset, thoughts and experience among medical personnel and medical students. PENDICAL started out, like many realities, a dream. It is a weblog whose contributors are medical personnel. In a most profound way, medicine and health meet art in the realm of writing. What we seek to achieve cannot be summarized into bullet points, but if through the pieces herein someone’s path is more illuminated or another is inspired to reach beyond its ‘limits’, if doubts are cleared from this mind or the spirit of another are lifted after a long day, PENDICAL would have served well in the line of duty. Our core values are creativity, excellence, truth, and passion.
