MISS Esther odunola adio says her driving is; her fathers philosophy; Be the best in everything you do. This was all she needed to emerge her as the best graduating student of 2016/2017; set as the 8th convocation ceremony of Joseph ayo babalola univerisity (JABU) ikeji arakeji, osun state.
The 22-old- year – old 565 other graduating students with cumulative grade point average of 4.90; from the department of computer science.
she said the moral, spiritual and academic excellence vision of the founding fathers; of JABU also spurred her to achieve the feat .
Esther attended the Ibadan district council (IDC) primary school, Akobo, in Ibadan before; proceeding to Christ the king secondary school in Ibadan, oyo state; before gaining admission to computer science.
Though she had been; brilliant student from her primary school and secondary school days, she sat the; unified tertiary matriculation examination (UTME) twice before gaining admission to JABU.
Her dream course was; medicine, but she was; never given; admission to study the course. But more importantly, her phobia for blood made her change that course of action the second time; she obtained the jamb utme form.
i wrote utme twice; i was not offered admission; at the first attempt and was; not given; admission to the course i wanted, Medicine, at UNILAG. so , i took the form the second time; and opted for computer science , for which JABU accepted me .
i wanted to study medicine, but along the line, i realised that there were certain things i didn’t put; into consideration that there were some certain things; i would not be able to do if i studied medicine.
When i started going through some books related to medicine as a course, and i got to know that there are no way to avoid blood during practise. i realised that i would not able to stand the sight of blood. i have phobia for blood so i took the jamb form the second time and opted for computer science.
when i look at computer science and look at the world today without computer science how would the world look like.
IN my experience in the college is; not easy to make first class degree, but i actually employed three things when i got admitted here; determination, discipline and hardworking . above all, i observed the fear of GOD is the beginning of wisdom.
there were times that i had to remove my mattress from my bed and sleep on the iron board in order not to be; too comfortable when sleeping and would be; forced to wake-up in the middle nite and read and before i read, i prayed almost every time.
