Johns Hopkins Admits its First Black Female Neurosurgeon Resident
With the black girl magic hashtag flooding the internet over various social media outlets, this movement continually inspires African-American females to embrace their full potential. Ghana native, Nancy Abu-Bonsrah is sprinkling her #BlackGirlMagic as she creates history. Abu-Bonsrah has been honored as the first black neurosurgeon resident at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. What more of a perfect time than Women’s History Month for Nancy Abu-Bonsrah to make such legendary strides?
This distinguished program is ranked second in the country and Hopkins only accepts two to five residents. Abu-Bonsrah shared her joy with her Facebook friends and family by posting a collage of her and her husband, and her acceptance letter. With only seven more years to go, Nancy tells reporters that she wants to eventually return home to provide medical care in an undeserved environment.
Everyone is familiar with the stress level and competition of the pupils in the medical field. To all the aspiring neurosurgeon and medical students, Nancy Abu-Bonsrah is a walking representation of “the sky’s the limit.”
