Two Kenyan doctors, who graduated from Turkish universities in the early 2000s, described Turkey as a country where foreign students can fulfill their dreams.
“Turkey is a vast ocean of opportunities," said Dr. Zahra Ali, founding president of Green Crescent in Kenya, a non-profit organization which fights addiction.
Ali came to Turkey in 1987 and completed her undergraduate in medicine at Hacettepe University in Ankara.
Sharing that she always dreamed of becoming a doctor, she said: “My dream became a reality in Turkey.”
Ali first heard of Turkey when she was in primary school.
“One of our history classes was about the Ottoman Empire. From then on, I always dreamed to visit Turkey as a tourist. I never thought I will arrive a student," she said.
As a Muslim girl wearing a headscarf, Ali says, she faced many difficulties while studying in Hacettepe University.
