THERE ARE JOBS, PEOPLE ARE UNEMPLOYABLE

Recently, I remembered my conversation with my camp director during my National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) period in camp (Nkwerre, Imo). We were recounting something that happened the night before at the Big, Bold and Beautiful Pageantry. A girl, a graduate of one of the private schools (I’d rather not mention) in Nigeria was asked to name states in the southern region of Nigeria and aunty says, YOBE!!! READ MORE

JUNE: THE GRADUATE

So the photographer said I should jump and I jumped and click, the took the picture and I liked the fact that I took all the care in the world and threw it to the wind, so ta da….

 

Ok, so days before my convocation I took ill and almost lost my life. I was forming James Bond and suppressing the illness until I landed in the hospital and was admitted for days. It was crazy but then I survived and successfully attended my graduation from Covenant University where I read (red) biochemistry. Much later I will let you in on what I graduated with. It will be in my success story, so stay tuned.

4 years was not easy… permit me to rephrase, 4 years was not beans, people told me how scary university was while I was in secondary school but I got in and realized it was not such a monstrous jungle but a world of experiences. The experiences make or mar you with your consent of course. Convocation was in 2 major phases, it lasted a whole week but the 2 main phases were the convocation day itself and the thanksgiving Sunday (touch of purple and white day). Lots of pictures were taken, unfortunately my memory card got damaged and I haven’t recovered from the loss. I still have a few pictures tho… That Sunday was the day we took pictures in the major, memorable points in school. The CU roundabout, the eagle, and many other places. I was really glad when I realized. I AM FINALLY AN EAGLE!!! (that’s what CU graduates are called).

I met a lot of awesome minds during and towards the end of my stay. One of the beautiful people I met is Dr Olumuyiwa Oludayo, formerly Mr. Fadugba (The Registrar, Covenant University). He taught me one of my greatest lessons in CU and I will leave you with that. Effort is useless if result is not evident. Whatever you do, make the result count.
