A 16-year-old Nigerian girl identified as Chioma Opara has achieved academic feats in the whole of Nigeria after setting the record straight by gaining admission into two prestigious universities in the world.

Chioma secured a scholarship worth CAD140,000 to Toronto University, Canada, and another USD152,000 to Long Island University, USA. Chioma, the Imo state Indigene girl was born to the family of Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton Opara’s family and is the last child of a family of four. Being an extraordinarily brilliant student, she started her secondary education at the age of eight years. This was evident from her clinching every prize, position, and certificate attached to internal and external examinations.

The star girl had her head up high after writing the Annual National Mathematics Competition (ANMC) organized by the Nigerian Tulip International Colleges, a 21st-century educational hub focusing on primary to secondary education development, using Nigerian and British Curricula. As a result of her outstanding performance in the ANMC Maths Competition, Chioma was given a 100 percent scholarship by Nigerian Turkish International College (NTIC) into her girls’ section in 2016, hence her journey to academic greatness began. It was also gathered that Chioma wrote her examinations and emerged with an almost perfect score of 1550 on SAT, 345 in the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME), and an unprecedented straight 9As in the West African Examination Council (WAEC). Chioma’s persevering nature was what made her stand head and shoulders above her peers and her passion and rapid learning rate are admirable.

Academic excellence was her tool for showcasing beauty as seen throughout her journey in secondary school, Chioma continued to showcase a rare sense of brilliance and diligence. Singing her praise, teachers, students, and classmates positively acknowledged her record of excellence in academics and character, her sincere devotion to academics which has paid off handsomely as she performed exceedingly colourful in the various exit examinations.

wards in the 2022/2023 academic session. Indeed, we are proud to have been part of her growth, the once-shy girl that walked into NTIC in 2016 is now leaving as a bright shiny star. Greatness awaits you Chioma!” – A Staff of NTIC
