Achievers varsity best student seeks scholarship to study abroad


Best graduating student of the Achievers University, Owo in Ondo State, Miss Mariam Oluwadamilola Oloko, has said that she needed sponsors to help her achieve her dreams of further study abroad for her Masters and doctorate.

Miss Oloko who hails from Ogun State studied International Relations and emerged best student in the 2020/2021 academic session.

Oloko who spoke in Owo during the 10th convocation ceremony of the institution said it was a lecturer, Mr. Oyindamola Oyewole, that saw potentials in her and encouraged her to work hard and earned good grades.

She stated that she never took her educational endeavors serious during her primary and secondary school as all she wanted was just to “pass and go.”

Oloko explained that for her father’s opinion was for his ‘daughters’ education to stop at the university level”

She disclosed that she focused on her studies after her encounter with the lecturer and never go partying or had boyfriends on campus because she hate distractions.

According to her, “I never went partying. I did not go to club in my four years stay. It was just my books. My friends will go out but I will always stay back. I only go out to buy chicken and chips, I don’t go to parties and do not have time to date guys. I am not saying you cannot do both but I don’t like distractions. I like to stay focus. It was not easy turning down guys but now the boys can come. 

“My dad did not go to school but he likes education. For his daughters you must stop at the university. During my primary and secondary school, I didn’t take learning seriously. I didn’t make my daddy happy. I was an average student because I wanted to be an average student. It was just why do I have to stressed myself. It was just pass and go. It was just like let me pass and go. In the university, my dad thought I was sleeping around. He thought I was scamming him but my mum tried a lot to raise money for me. My friends called me names and said I was a proud person.

“My daddy is paranoid and protective. He has the belief that guys always come around women. That was why he thought I was sleeping around He thought I came here to waste my life and I hope I have proved him wrong.

“Daddy will not give you money to buy clothes. He will just turn his heads but he gave me good money for my convocation which means he is happy.

“I wish to get a scholarship to study for my masters and doctorate abroad then come back to impact knowledge. If the scholarship did not come then it is left for my dad to decide because I cannot raise money myself. I am tired of stressing my mum.

“I sacrificed a lot especially begging people for money. Some will block you off. 

“My daddy didn’t want Achievers. My mum wanted me to study abroad but it didn’t work out. I won’t recommend private schools but I will recommend Achievers. In some private universities, you will see their questions are very cheap.”
