A Nigerian man who has been identified as Ifeanyi Obi has taken to his social media page to share his success story.
According to Infeanyi, his success story is a rollercoaster of pain, endurance and determination.
Ifeanyi graduated with a second class lower grade(2:2) in a Nigerian university. A result which he said was not “an excellent feat.”
After suffering over 16 rejections from different universities in the UK, USA and Canada where he had applied for his Masters studies, Obi proceeded with “great determination to Cyprus to Study.
“This was due to personal issues and strangely struggles against words spoken to me by a prophet that I won’t do well academically if ever I chose that path.” Ifeanyi recalled.
Ifeanyi only did not graduate with High Honours(3.8) for his Masters Studies, but was offered a place for PhD in the same university.
In the same manner, he graduated as the best student that year and was the valedictorian. He was also offered a place as a lecturer and after 4 years of meritorious service, he became an associate professor.
“Last year my software in BuildTech got approved by the UK endorsement body and this year obtained an Innovator Migrant Visa to establish a software lab in London, collaborating with great minds like Prof Rita Orji Rita Orji, PhD . I have now travelled to almost all the Universities I got rejections from for research collaborations or research study visits.”
