    • What were the challenges you passed through while in school?

    I had a whole lot of challenges. One of them was financial challenge. I am from a very humble background. We reside in Aba.

    I remember in my first and second years, I used to drink garri (cassava flakes) and eat Fibre active
    biscuit. It was a daily ration to me. I also used ropes as belts as a student. I remember then, I had few clothes. No shoes to where, only slippers.

    Having money to pay my fees was an issue. I stayed in the hostel from first year till I graduated. In my first year, I was having an eye challenge. Then, I would be seated in front of the classroom. Yet, I would not see what was written on the board. No money to go to the hospital for check up talk less of getting glasses.

    I had a D in a three unit load first year course. It was a motivational factor that spurred me into reading more.

    • What is your dream having graduated from the university?

    My dream is to continue giving my best. I see myself as an educationalist. I want to establish schools. I want to change the ways our secondary school students are being taught.
