“Impossible is a word only found in the dictionary of fools”. This phrase by Napoleon Bonaparte perfectly sums up the story of Antônio Tonouti, an old man from Brazil who became viral expressing his wishes to become a doctor at the age of 82. He took the entrance exam to the Medicine career at the State University of Londrina, located in the state of Paraná.
The old man, who already has a law degree and has practiced as a pharmacist, explained that his motivation to become a doctor is due to his noble desire to give free consultations to those in need.
According to GloboPlay, Antônio, who also teaches painting and English classes, made the decision to undertake this professional challenge when he saw the youngest take the exam. He also said that studying active neurons and education is the most important thing in life.
Although he knows that he will have to wait until April 2021 to know the results of the test, he assures that he has already laid out his main objective: “If I pass, which is very difficult for me, I will continue studying. And, if I have lived until then, I promise to have free consultations “.
Antônio’s determination and willpower have moved thousands on social media, where his story has gone viral.
