Student Indira Morgana de Araújo Silva, 31 years old, one of the three Sergipeans who achieved the maximum score in the essay of the National High School Exam (Enem) 2023, was approved in 2nd place in medicine at the Federal University of Sergipe. She even gave up her doctorate to dedicate herself to trying to pass the course she had wanted since she was a teenager.

In 2010, the woman from Sergipe tried to study medicine, but soon gave up, believing she would not be approved, and went to study agronomy, a profession in which she has a master’s degree. In 2017, she passed her doctorate at two universities, one of them being Federal de Viçosa (UFV), but her dream prevented her from leaving Sergipe for Minas Gerais.

“Medicine is a noble profession, dedicated to caring for others. Financial stability was also one of my motivations,” she said.

“I couldn’t believe it. The penny only dropped when I started receiving messages from friends and family congratulating me on my approval.”

Indira will study medicine at the UFS campus in Lagarto, which is about 30 minutes from her city, Simão Dias, where she lives with her parents. Urology is one of the possible specializations she intends to pursue after graduation, which lasts around six years.
