Congratulations are in order for a young woman identified as Toun Banjo, who just graduated from the University of Ibadan as the only first class student from her department.

Banjo took to her Twitter account to reveal that she was also the best graduating student of her department, having won seven awards. However, the journey was not always smooth.

According to her, she failed her first Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) examination before she got admitted into a tertiary institution.

Delay is not denial! I failed my First JAMB, scored a 279 at second trial & now I’m the Best graduating Student of my department with a total of 7 awards. I am also the only First class student from the department of Geography, University of Ibadan. Hello World!

I’m most grateful for the gap year, it helped put things in perspective, I got a degree in Software engineering at NIIT and met the most amazing people during that period. Failures are opportunities to reflect and restrategize. You only lose when you give up!
