The country might be short of highly dedicated and selfless leaders but in their absence, exists extraordinary and intelligent students like 22-year-old Nigeria, Dorcas Omada Oche who recently bagged First Class degree in Pharmacy from the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences, Karnataka, India on the 29thth of June 2018.
Dorcas who is a native of Otukpa, Ogbadibo LGA of Benue State, came out with a total of 72.2% CGPA. Her joy knew no bounds as she took to social media to express how excited she is on her path to becoming a Pharmacist. Speaking about her obvious success, she wrote about the hurdles she faced while in the University and how she was able to cope.
“Finally completed my B.Pharmacy course with First class results. I thank the Lord almighty, my beloved parents, my family and friends.
I must confess, being a foreigner was not easy at first. Another thing was that it was difficult to understand their flow of English intonation. Also, the system was different from Nigeria’s. We had to go to school from Monday till Sunday, spending at least eight hours. But, above all, I am glad I made my country, state and my community proud.”
This is just another testimony of how Nigerian students can adapt and come out successful wherever they find themselves in foreign countries.
