Brilliant Lady bags Microbiology degree with 4.78 first-class grade, wins best graduating student award
A brilliant Lady named Adesoyin Aderanti has won the award of best graduating student at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Nigeria after bagging a Microbiology degree with 4.78 over a possible 5.00 cumulative grade point.
Aderanti obtained a bachelor’s degree in Microbiology with an outstanding grade of distinction from Obafemi Awolowo University. Her impressive performance earned her the award of the best graduating student of the university’s Faculty of Science.
She took to Twitter to celebrate her achievement giving thanks to God. Aderanti shared that she was not a first-class student in her first year and her goal was never to have a first-class, but just to graduate with good marks.
Aderanti said despite not having a first-class right from the first year, she was able to bag four awards at her graduation. ”Best Graduating Student, Faculty of Science, 2021/22 session, Obafemi Awolowo University. First-class Honours (4.78/5.00),” she said.
She said her achievement is more surprising because she was actively involved in other things including creative and professional writing and editing, filmmaking, content creation, fashion designing, spoken word, and even politics.
Aderanti said her greatest joy comes from the many microbiology students in Nigeria whose lives were impacted when she was national vice president of the National Association of Microbiology Students.
She thanked her university community and Microbiology department for the values they instilled stating that she hopes to replicate these qualities in global fields.
Aderanti mentioned that she has interests in science communication, genetics, and molecular biology and she is open to opportunities that can advance her career and help her contribute to society.
