"I think initially it was difficult because my mom and I have always been really close so I had to get used to the distance, we had to learn how to FaceTime and Skype each other, so we were Skyping each other every day and whenever I had struggles and she had struggles, we just had to learn to communicate from a distance," Jasmine told UMHS. "But I think over time we figured it out."Their sacrifices paid off in April when the two graduated from medical school at the same time! Cynthia earned her M.D. in Family Medicine and Jasmine earned hers in General Surgery. But the best was yet to come. On Match Day, during which medical school graduates get the results of their residency and fellowship applications, the Kudjis learned they'd both be going to LSU Health! After spending years apart, they'll be working together. They're the first mother-daughter duo to graduate from medical school together and match at the same hospital. Congratulations, Dr. Cynthia Kudji and Dr. Jasmine Kudji! You've both worked so hard to get to this point. We know it wasn't easy, but you inspired each other to succeed. Share to spread congratulations to these incredible women!
