student success stories – rafaela uwaibi attends white coat ceremony

At the 2011 Academic Assembly, Dr. Sandy Shugart, president of Valencia College, shared the story of alumnus Rafaela (Ella) Uwaibi who came to the United States from Brazil with a clear purpose in mind – to be a doctor. Ella attributes the shaping of her dream to her time at Valencia.

When we brought you her story a year and a half ago, Ella had graduated from Valencia in 2008 and the Rollins Hamilton Holt School of Business in 2011. Since that time she enrolled in the College of Medicine at the University of Florida and in December, attended her White Coat ceremony.

Watch the video below to learn about how Ella is living her dream.
