I was awarded the NNPC/SNEPCo national university scholarship in 2016. Being a medical student, I struggled with the financial demands of my education—tuition fess, professional exams, laboratory practicals, books, to mention a few. This was a huge burden on my parent and the award came at the right time to relieve this load. Today, I can meet the financial demands of my education, get all the books I need and seat for my professional exams with ease. My grades are getting better and I am on the path to graduating with a first-class in Medicine and Surgery. I am an Authentic Voice.
