A young Nigerian lady who graduated on Sunday, June 27, as she became the Overall Best Student of Babcock University with a CGPA of 4.91 has spoken about her success story on LinkedIn.
The mass communication graduate said when she was in her first year, she thought the best she would come out with would be second class.
She was anxious
Omolola revealed that during her first semester in the school, after calculating her grades, she said:
“…whatever happens will happen.”
The smart lady disclosed that despite having a 4.909 GPA, she was very anxious about keeping up with the performance.
“The results came out and I started with a first class (4.909 to be exact). I was elated but I was also riddled with anxiety. ‘What if I can’t maintain this? This is too high. Everyone is looking at me now’.”
God did it!
Omolala said despite the fact that people were congratulating her in the first year, she was very scared of what could happen after.
According to the lady, God strengthened her and made her hard work pay off. In Omolola's post, she shared a photo showing her holding numerous awards.
