“It’s never too late to run after your dreams.” So says Senior News Correspondent and anchor at the state owned ABS TV, Eldean Atiba Eudelle during an interview with Caribarena.
Eudelle is presently a third year medical student in Cuba on a government scholarship.The question however that plagued the minds of many upon receiving the news of the career move was, “Why?”
Born in Brooklyn, New York on the 23rd of November 1980, Eudelle said that he always dreamt of becoming a doctor.
He moved to Antigua with his mother educator Hilarine Eudelle after the completion of her studies at Medgar Evers- CUNY.
From the St. John’s Catholic Primary School, Eudelle gained a scholarship to the Antigua Grammar School where he paid keen interest to the science subjects.
After writing his CXC examinations, the ambitious 16 year old Eudelle decided it was time to return to his country of birth to get on with his dream of becoming a doctor. Eudelle was accepted to CUNY’s –Hunter where he began his pre-med courses.
After completing his freshman year the unexpected happened. “I steered away from my dreams and fell in love with journalism and theatre,” said Eudelle with a contented smile on his face.
This path he said led him to ABS TV after attaining a double BA in Journalism and Theatre.
Eudelle says at times life leads you where you least expect, but you have to have faith that you are where you are meant to be.
It was this mentality he attributes to his tenure in the profession of journalism.
In 2006, the ABS TV News Anchor said he realized it was time to get back on the path he first walked back in 1997 in the USA- the path that would lead him to his ultimate dream of becoming a doctor.
So when Eudelle takes on the title of “Dr” will this mean the end of journalism?
“No definitely not, journalism is a part of my soul and if you kill a part of your soul, you can’t survive.” He said.
He says he plans to be a medical correspondent for the government of Antigua and Barbuda attached to the state own media where he hopes to merge his journalistic skills with that of medicine.
Eudelle says that it is time for Antigua and Barbuda and the rest of the Caribbean to have a ‘Dr. Sanjay Gupta,’ (a popular medical correspondent on CNN).
Now the question that remains, how is the journalist coping with his new life in Cuba?
