Meanwhile, a Nigerian lady on Twitter who goes by the name Amarachi Osuji has narrated a moving story of how she dumped medicine for engineering.
Making the academic change did not come easily as she dithered for three years before she gathered the strength for the pivotal step.
The need to switch to engineering started after her first semester in Hungary. She pushed on for 5 semesters. By that time, the scholarship she was on was dealt a blow by government negligence.
After bouts with depression of “what-comes-after”, she called home and told them about wanting to leave medicine. Her family did not take it lightly as she got many calls from them trying to dissuade her
That particular decision would be a big part of her life years on as she on Friday, January 17, graduated with a first-class degree with a 4.9 CGPA and an award for sterling academic excellence.
In other news, a Nigerian man with the name Vicent Adeoba also shared his story to show that no matter how rough one’s road is, you can still make it if there is strong determination.
Vincent said that he lost his dad at a very young age and his mom passed away when he was four. Two years after that at age six, he started hawking bread to survive.
A year after that, he started his primary school education, which happened in the year he ran away from home.
At age eight, he sold things like okra, garden egg, garri, fish, and others. Between the age of 10 and 19, he had to wade through many challenges like surviving flood, dropping out of school, and failing WAEC.
