In a statement to the foundation, the intelligent young man recounted how he almost gave up on his quest to study abroad after he suffered an initial setback.

He thanked the founder of the Ckodon Foundation, Selorm Promsie Abedu, for his instrumental role in helping him achieve his dream.

"Frankly, I had given up and had no intentions of subjecting myself to reapplication, or even retaking the SAT. The SAT only became a reality because Selorm insisted.

Evans further admonished persons desirous of studying abroad never to give up, regardless of the obstacles that they might face.

"Earlier this year, thanks to divine favor, I earned a place at Lehigh, a testimony to the labor that went into the journey. We all had to keep trying, reminding us that hope should never be abandoned. Keep applying, never cease to pray and, above all, have faith that God will come through. I'm a proud Beta Ckodonite!"
