“I have always been somewhat academically gifted. But, I would not describe myself as a genius. I just found the right information and made use of it. My parents are also instrumental to that. My mum would look for information and act on it,” she told Punch.

Nkechinyere Chidi-Ogbolu finally earned her PhD in Bioengineering and Biomedical Engineering in 2022 at the young age of 22. Celebrating her achievement on LinkedIn, she stated that her PhD was the most stressful and challenging thing she has ever put herself through.
