Amiloaded: Have you ever encounter any difficulties during
your days in school?

She said" The admission search quest was the first
challenge on its own. It took me two and a half years to
secure admission after my secondary education since 2011.
What about during your university days?

The most challenging days were during my second year at
school (200 level), it took me little time to adjust to the
learning processes.

Alhamdulilaah, I passed through hurdles and I was
astonished when I had 5.00 GPA for the very first time at
200 level second semester.
Amiloadee: " We learnt that your faculty/department is the
most difficult in uniosun, how do you overcome this?
She said"

Yes, in fact, I was almost discouraged about the course
during my first year. The senior colleagues discouraged us
about the course (Microbiology) and the lecturers. They
addressed the lecturers as strict, unapproachable beings
and disciplinarians who cant add a mark to a students score

Alhamdulillah, I feel elated to have graduated from that
department as I was been trained by disciplinarians who
made me realize how essential it was to value due
processes rather than shortcuts.
How did you come over all the challenges?

How I overcame it wasn't secretive. I sat down, discovered
myself and promised myself to graduate with a CGPA of
4.95 in the Department of Microbiology. All I did was to
discover who I was by passing through the self-discovery
quest. I discovered my reading & studying strategies. Then, I
devised an acronym for myself- P.U.D.H.E (Prayers,
Understanding, Determination, Hard work, Extracurricular
The acronym helped me a lot and Alhamdulillah, Allah made
it feasible for me.

It wasn't by my ease by Allaah's to have
graduated with a 4.91 C.G.P.A. after setting a goal of 4.95.
Maryam revealed that she was not a social enthusiast while
in school and that all she does was reading and reading
most of the times.

Maryam is a doting lady from a lovely family. She's a an
easy going being who loves to utilize every golden
opportunity of networking and meeting with people.

The 23 year old is from the ancient town Osogbo and hopes
to have a better career in the academics.
