A young Nigerian lady identified as Sarah Oladejo has taken to social media to celebrate her win after bagging a full-ride scholarship for her master’s degree in computational biology at the University of Alabama, United States.
Taking to her LinkedIn page to make the disclosure, Oladejo who graduated from the Lagos State University (LASU) with a first class said she was selected for the Mastercard Foundation Scholarship.
In her words:
“I was selected for the Mastercard Foundation Scholarship for a Masters in Canada and a Graduate Assistantship as well as a Fellowship for my Master’s degree in the United States of America. Allow me to introduce to you a Graduate Scholar and Fellow at the University of Alabama, USA going for a Master’s degree in Computational Biology on a full-ride scholarship.”
It didn’t come easy
The achievement didn’t come on a platter of gold for the young lady as she had to work relentlessly to ensure she was given the scholarship.
According to her, it was a voyage filled with sleepless nights of essay reviews, coding, strategic dismantling of the internet for information, days and nights of fasting and prayers.
“My affirmations in my article on Nature Pays Diligence are gradually manifesting. It is incontrovertible that a man diligent in his work will stand before kings and not mere men because truly, Nature Pays Diligence.”
Gratitude to everyone who made it happen
Oladejo expressed gratitude to Jesus who fulfilled his promise in her life. She also appreciated her parents, sisters and mentors for their contributions.
Many are impressed
Nigerians were inspired and they flooded the comment section of the post to celebrate with the young lady.
