The Doctor, two


Jose had earned top grades in his school in Chile. As a result, he received a scholarship to study at a university in Poland.

In his first year, he and other foreign students took a course in Polish. It was tough going…but most persevered.

They then began four years of medical study.

Along the way, Amin met and befriended fellow student, Cecile, from Malaysia.

After getting their medical degrees, they got married, and emigrated to France.
