Meet The Alius Family. 5 Nigerian Sisters Who All Became Medical Doctors.
The Aliu family from Nigeria produced five sisters that are all doctors in different fields of the medical profession.
Neurosurgeon, a plastic surgeon, a family physician, community health physician, and a obstetrician are all black women and sisters! How amazing is this? This is Black girl magic.
This field is typically male-dominated but the Aliu sisters are blazing a new trail and are changing that narrative.
“Awesome. If you educate a woman, you educate the family and the community,” says Atiku Abubakar, former Nigerian vice-president.
