- Faith has received four awards
As the world is evolving, people are gradually becoming more diverse with different life choices. Gone are the days where everyone hopped on the bandwagon of focusing solely on "professional careers". These days, the society has become more accepting which has led to the massive growth of entrepreneurs caving their niche in the various industries.
19-year-old graduate of Computer Sciences, Faith Onyekachukwu Ojumah has become an online sensation after she made known her preferred choice of career. The young lady who graduated from McPherson University, a faith-based tertiary institution established by the Foursquare Gospel Church in Nigeria received four awards.
According to The Nation, the brilliant young lady who graduated as the Overall Best Graduating Student with a CGPA of 4.84 was very emotional as she went up to collect the awards. She is said to be the first child in the family of three.
Apparently, Faith has quite a different plan for the degree she just earned. Speaking with CAMPUSLIFE, she expressed her intentions to become an agricultural entrepreneur. She went further to state that she already has created a team of software developers whose focus is to apply their computing expertise to bring about great change and development in the nation’s agricultural sector.
“I was surprised the results of our final year examination were released and I found out that I would be graduating with the highest CGPA. I believe my mom would be proud of this wherever she is now, because it is a promise I made to her. I am only sad that she is no longer with us to witness what I have achieved today,”
"After my mom passed on, things were difficult for the family because the responsibility to raise me and my siblings fell on my father. Sometimes, dad would get stressed up trying to raise money for his personal projects and for our upkeep. Finance became the main challenge.One fact about being a student is that, if you are hungry, it won’t be possible for you to read and assimilate. Each time I felt the impact of this inadequate finance, I would want to give up on schooling, but I bore the pain because there was no reason to surrender. All of these reinforced my determination to succeed and also taught me to be a strong-willed lady with focus on excellence.”
The young lady while making her family proud, no doubt is set to take over the agricultural sector of the country. With such determination and faith in herself, she has no plans of stopping.
