Lady whose pregnancy was almost terminated emerges best graduating student, bags 4.90/5.00 CGPA
A brilliant Nigerian lady whose pregnancy was almost terminated by her mother has emerged the best graduating student of the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) located in South West Nigeria, after bagging a CGPA of 4.90 out a possible 5.00.
The lady who goes by name Miracle Olawale Olatunde graduated from the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry with an outstanding 5.00 GPA in her final semesters, pushing her to achieve the feat of 4.90 as her final cumulative point.
Narrating her story through her Linkedin profile, she revealed that her mother, Mrs Bose Ayangunna, single-handedly sponsored her education as her father wrote her mum to terminate her pregnancy.
She also noted that the letter to her mother was the last communication he had with them as she has never heard anything from him throughout her entire lifetime.
Narrating further, she said her mother was ready to go through any length to make sure she got the things she needed throughout her academic journey.
“She would go through any length to make sure I got the things I needed. She would send me all of her meager civil servant- based salary to pay for one project or the other in school.
“I owe all of this to her!” she added.
Mircale’s first class degree in pure and applied chemistry made her outstanding despite all the challenges she encountered during her life journey. With such an outstanding academic performance, she stands a great chance of winning several scholarship awards to further her education in Europe, Canada or the United States of America (USA).
