A Nigerian lady has narrated how she defied the odds against her to emerge the best graduating student in her department at the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO), Imo state.
Ihetu Chimdinma Adaugo, in a post on LinkedIn revealed that she originally studying Medicine at Madonna University but had to drop out in 300 level when she lost her parents.
She re-wrote JAMB twice and eventually settled for studying Biomedical Technology at FUTO.
