Nigerians are known for making a difference and breaking limits. There are many Nigerians who have set the pace in different fields of life and made people across the world to believe Nigerians are people of intellect. 

One of those Nigerians is the young Nigerian medical doctor, Ola Orekunrin Brown, who has set the pace as the founder of Flying Doctors, West Africa's first indigenous air ambulance service. 

Born in 1986 to Nigerian parents in London, United Kingdom, she graduated from the prestigious University of Hull York Medical School from where she became the youngest medical doctor in England.

In her quest to make a difference and provide solutions to problems, Ola founded the Flying Doctors which became the West Africa's first indigenous emergency air ambulance service. 

Ola's quest to establish the Flying Doctors Nigeria which late became the West Africa's first indigenous emergency air ambulance service all started after she discovered that there was no air ambulance service set up in Nigeria. 

The feet achieved by Ola is one that needs to be celebrated and honoured for thinking outside the box and also giving Nigeria a good image. 

Her company, Flying Doctors Nigeria, is equipped with superior medical devices and even went on to work in remote locations to provide emergency air ambulance service. 

In recognition of her giant strides, Ola was featured in the Time Magazine’s “Next Generation Leaders” and was also featured in in CNN’s “Marketplace Africa”.

In 2013, Ola was listed among Young Global leaders by World Economic Forum.
