A beautiful Nigerian lady with a humble beginning has risen above all odds to write her name in gold on the sands of time with her academic achievement.
A Nigerian lady Miss Ibu Faith has bagged distinction in MSc in Asset Management Engineering from University of Bedfordshire, United Kingdom.
The young lady once worked on a farm in her village where she cultivated and harvested plantains before she gained scholarship to study abroad.
A friend described her as a very shy girl from the village who has today made Nigeria proud in Europe.

MORNING MOTIVATION!!! I have known Miss Ibu Faith for about 7 years now as a dedicated, honest, intelligent, unassuming and respectful young lady.
Just last year, we were discussing about her plans for the future after NYSC and I encouraged her to apply for admission and scholarship for postgraduate studies.
Her application to the University of Liverpool was rejected despite her 3.10 CGPA in Banking and Finance. We tried other Universities within and outside Nigeria; and also applied for several scholarship opportunities. Luckily, she got a Petroleum Technology Development Fund (PTDF) scholarship to study MSc in Asset Management Engineering.
You begin to wonder how someone who did Banking and Finance is expected to pursue an Engineering degree in postgraduate studies, I then encouraged her to switch to Project Management, which she did after some convincing.
December 2016, she was on her way to the United Kingdom to study MSc in Project Management at the University of Bedfordshire.
Just 12 months later, she sent me one of the most amazing messages I have got throughout the year, that shy plantain carrying petite Ogbia girl is graduating with an MSc with Distinction in Project Management.
Congratulations my friend!!!
