Dr. Ola Sandra Ndukwe, a young Nigerian woman, has graduated with honors in internal medicine after putting in a lot of effort.
Dr. Ndukwe, who graduated from Imo State University, Owerri, said she won seven prizes, including best in paediatrics, biochemistry, and physiology, on her Twitter page.
She expressed her gratitude on the social networking platform, saying she couldn’t contain her delight.
In her words:
“I’m super grateful. I can’t contain my Joy. CONGRATULATIONS to me.”
Speaking with Legit, the young doctor said God has always been her strength, adding that she also put in lots of hard work to achieve such feats.
In her words:
“The medical programme in my school is long (10 years) and arduous, so I made a vow never to add to the stay. I put in my very best to ensure that. I can assert in all confidence that God was faithful to me. He crowned my efforts with success.”
She despite the fact that medicine takes a toll on one’s social life, she was able to balance her academics with her social life.
Dr Ola said:
“I made concerted efforts at balancing my social, spiritual and academic life. I left none unchecked.
“My social life wasn’t boring. In fact, I had a way of taking a break from academic stress once I felt intellectually saturated. The most important thing is not to forget the reason why you’re in school, with that mindset, everything can be taken care of with proper planning.”
