21-year-old Elizabeth Ekeoseye, University of Lagos, UNILAG’s 2019/2020 overall best graduating student, has shared her first-class journey to motivate others
In an interview with the Education report, Elizabeth spoke about her journey, ASUU strike, how to make first-class, and other issues. Who is Elizabeth Ekeoseye? I hail from Igueben Local Government, Edo State, but reside with my family in Delta State. I am the sixth and last child of the late Chief Stephen Ekeoseye and Mrs. Penna Ekeoseye. I am a lover of God and it finds expression in all I do. My parents played a principal role in imbibing the reading habit in me. Growing up, my dad would purchase large numbers of books for me without complaining about the cost while my mom would sit with me as we studied together. As a result, I never saw reading as a forceful activity. I enjoyed it.
Apart from reading, I love to sing. I am a chorister in Souls Harvesters Ministries (the church my family attends in Delta State) and in the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministry Youth Church, which I attended while I was an undergraduate at UNILAG. I did my nursery and primary school education at Highquest Nursery and Primary School, Warri, Delta State, from 2003 to 2010. I was awarded as the best graduating student of my set. I did my secondary education at Delta Careers College, Warri, from 2010 to 2016. I was the head girl of my set. I emerged as the best female graduating student. I partook in the Awokoya Memorial Chemistry Competition in 2015 and emerged as the second best in Delta State. After my National Examinations Council (NECO) in 2016, I was presented an award of excellence for emerging as the third best candidate in Delta State by Learn Africa Plc.
