(as seen in Durham Nativity’s September Newsletter)

Zoeta Zigbuo (DNS ‘17) has been up to some great things since graduating from Durham Nativity School! The current sophomore at Tallulah Falls in Georgia did a summer internship with Dr. Deborah Attix in the Duke Department of Neurology.

The internship allowed him to shadow Dr. Attix and assisted with several projects. He did such an amazing job that he was invited to return again next year!

Zoeta was introduced to Dr. Attix through his mentor, Phillip Walker, a Duke Medical School student, and Morehouse graduate. They first met during a Duke mission trip to Uganda while Zoeta was in 8th-grade at Durham Nativity. Some of our students were able to participate in the mission trip thanks to the generous efforts of Dr. Michael Haglund, a neurosurgeon at Duke Health.

When Phillip learned that Zoeta would be attending school in his home state of Georgia and that he was an aspiring doctor, he took the young man under his wing. Since then, Phillip and his parents have become a second family for Zoeta, helping him to strengthen his commitment to becoming a doctor one day – a dream which began at Durham Nativity.
