Biography

My name is Esther Ijeoma Onwuakpa, but everyone calls me Est. I was born on the 16th of April 1995 in Lagos, Nigeria. I moved to Italy in 2007 where I have done all my studies up to now. I got into Napoli Federico II in 2015 at position 448 out of almost 8000 participants. My class is very multicultural: British, Palestinian, Pakistani, Iraqi, Moroccan, French, Greek, Cypriot as well as Italian citizens.
I choose medicine in English language because I would like to specialise in surgery (maybe cardio surgery) in the UK and I believe that this course will help me to have a better knowledge in medical English and terminologies as well as prepare myself towards a future as a medical doctor.
I was elected as the course’s representative in the second year. It has been a very demanding position yet satisfying, especially when the students’ requests are met.
In my free time I like travelling, photography and creating travel videos. I also like reading thrillers, going to the cinema or watching Netflix, partying with friends, going to the gym and watching my favourite sports: formula 1 and football.
