As a dedicated writer, Olivier struggled so many times when he wanted to publish his medical articles. Despites the fact that newspapers and other media organizations wanted a fee before publishing his work, he did not give up. Many of his articles were ignored.

Olivier truly believes that we need each other’s hand in order to improve people’s welfare completely and successfully. They say prevention is better than cure; It can only be achieved by practicing healthy diet, lifestyle and changing our mindsets. We need to acknowledge that the way some people live and what they put in their mouths, their physical activities and emotional well being can be more powerful than prescribed.
Being an African medical student abroad pushed him to realize that he should stop being spectator. Rather he needs to become part of the solutions to the most pressing problems in his communities. He believes that he can make an impact on local communities, countries and even across the globe through small projects which can improve the lives of people all over the world.
