To those who say that Africa continues to suffer from brain drain, meet Fahima Osman a Somali surgeon from Canada and a model for DOVE. Like countless others, Fahima’s journey is a path through refugee to heroine. As the first Canadian-trained doctor in her community and currently a volunteer in Somaliland, she has become an inspiration to women and refugees everywhere with her determination and success. This past month, actress Mandy Moore introduced Fahima who was being honored for her efforts by DOVE, the beauty care company. Much of Fahima’s success is attributable to her determination in school where she worked her way through university and achieved a scholarship to attend the prestigious Johns Hopkins medical school. After graduating as a general surgeon, Fahima graduated moved on to the true goal of her childhood - not only to become a doctor, but to return to Somaliland where she feels the best way to give back is by training and empowering young people to help themselves and future generations. For her efforts in giving back and for being the first Canadian-trained doctor of the largest African community, we salute her and ask you to join us.
