Toun Banjo, a Nigerian lady has taken to her Twitter handle to express her joy at becoming a first class graduate and best graduating student of her department despite failing the Joint Admission and Matriculation JAMB examination on her first attempt.
Posting photos from her graduation online, Toun wrote
Delay is not denial! I failed my First JAMB, scored a 279 at second trial & now I’m the Best graduating Student of my department with a total of 7 awards. I am also the only First class student from the department of Geography, University of Ibadan. Hello World!
I’m most grateful for the gap year, it helped put things in perspective, I got a degree in Software engineering at NIIT and met the most amazing people during that period. Failures are opportunities to reflect and restrategize.
