Because of seeing her mom experiencing this, Lesther wanted to help alleviate some of the pain and suffering of people with dental issues like her mom. Her parents and uncle kindly supported her in her desire to become a dentist in Papua New Guinea. She completed a 5 year Bachelor of Dental Medicine degree at UPNG. She was baptized in 2015 at an Adventist church in Mendi. Lesther enjoys playing Rugby, volleyball, cooking and reading. She is a welcome addition to the dental team in Kudjip.
