A smart Nigerian student has won big as he took advantage of the ongoing ASUU strike to process university admissions abroad.
The student, identified as Chinemerem Timothy, a 200-level Biology student of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri disclosed this during an interview with Legit.
The young man, who also appealed for sponsors, said that he desires studying overseas so that he can return and make an impact in the health care industry.
He named the universities that offered him admission as follows: University of Akron, Ohio, University of Colorado, Denver, University of Mary, Washington DC, University of Nebraska, Lincoln, Middle Tenessee State University and Clemson University South Carolina.
“The application process wasn’t that smooth for me because I encountered rejections from some schools.
I’ve always wanted to study abroad since I entered Secondary School and in my JSS2 I was selected among other students from different schools in Imo to attend an Igbo Language Conference in London and that was what triggered my quest to study abroad.
I’ve always wanted to become a healthcare practitioner so as help eliminate health disparities and achieve health equity. I pray I get a sponsor.”
