Dorice… 6 years later!

A look at Dorice's journey after she toured Australia in 2016 with Gemma Sisia, Founder.

How time flies...  this time in 2016 was an exciting time for Dorice and Gemma. Dorice had been chosen to travel with Founder of The School of St Jude, Gemma Sisia to Australia, for the very first annual tour with a St Jude’s graduate.

As this was Dorice’s first time overseas, she was bursting with excitement. She could not wait to share her journey with the audience. She told audiences all about her school years at St Jude’s and her dream of becoming a doctor.

So, where is Dorice today?

Dorice has realised her dream of becoming a doctor! In December, she graduated with a degree in medicine and has started her residency, an internship program or training for graduates with a Doctor of Medicine degree, in Mwanza, located in northern Tanzania. Now, she plans to specialise in gynaecology.

Dorice’s university education was supported by Beyond St Jude’s (BSJ), our program for secondary graduates.

Dorice is a wonderful example of the life-changing power of education. Once a student supported by donors and sponsors, now Dorice is supporting her community as a doctor!

Thanks to your support, Dorice could reach her academic potential and is now a doctor. Sponsor a student’s scholarship or donate today to make a difference.


  1. It was so lovely to meet you, Dorice, with Gemma here in Cleveland, Brisbane back in 2016… but now it is even more exciting to see where you are today! All the very best for your journey, and your future in gynaecology.

  2. Congratulations Dorice, I was privileged to hear you speak in 2016 at St. Marks Uniting Church Mornington in Victoria, Australia.
    What a lot of study you have done but you have accomplished what you set out to do. Well done.
    Best wishes for your future, Gwen Bates

  3. A great success and what a beautiful young lady. We were very impressed with Dorice when we saw her at Tamworth. Good luck for the future.

  4. Congratulations Dorice on a wonderful achievement.

    I was lucky to meet Dorice when, on the 2016 tour, she attended the 60th birthday celebration for Sandy Muscolino in Sydney.

    I wish her well for the next stage of her studies.
