“Early this week, I reconnected with Aunty Ijeoma, who was my Nursery 3 teacher at St. Joseph’s Development Nursery/Primary School Umuchichi Aba. I was unaware that she was a student in my department, until she came to attend my course,” wrote Anucha.
He went on to express his gratitude for the impact Aunty Ijeoma had on his life, saying “Aunty, thank you for teaching me well then. I am what I am today because of you. Life is indeed a cumulative effect.”
