Nnaemeka said having a vision was very important and he dealt with it as such. To succeed in school, he decided that if people who were not deaf can read one book ahead of lecturers, he would do 10.
Now a doctorate degree holder and an assistant professor, the man shared a photo of his graduation ceremony when he got a PhD in nuclear engineering.
