An inspirational Nigerian woman named Adebola Tolulope Adeoti recently revealed her success story on LinkedIn, detailing her challenges along the way to being the recipient of two renowned scholarships.
The young woman mentioned that she was exposed to gender-based prejudice from a young age and went on to start an NGO called Ladies Connect Initiative that defends women’s rights against gender-based violence through free legal representation and community-focused initiatives.
Adebola Tolulope Adeoti stated: “Aside from the statistics on gender-based violence and discrimination against girls, attending a girls’ secondary school and growing up in a rural area also exposed me to the harsh reality of the Nigerian girl child.” She further stated that the experience and her reality influenced her decision to become a lawyer to protect women’s rights and to also empower them.⠀
Adebola Tolulope Adeoti said: “After graduating from the university, I established an NGO called Ladies Connect Initiative that defends women’s rights against gender-based violence through free legal representation and neighborhood-based initiatives that have served thousands of girls and women in rural communities for the past four years.” She applied for the Chevening and Commonwealth Shared Scholarships in an effort to improve her talents, and out of 58,000 applications worldwide, she was chosen as one of the top 2%.
The delighted scholar revealed, “For the Commonwealth Shared Scholarship: I was nominated by two schools: Brunel University, which is also one of the top public universities in London, to study LLM International Human Rights, and the University of Sussex, which is ranked as the first university in the world for development studies to study Gender and Development.
However, I have made the decision to choose the Chevening Scholarship to complete my Master’s at the University of Ulster, the only institution in the UK and Ireland to offer the LLM in Gender, Conflict, and Human Rights.
Being chosen as one of the top 2% of 58,000 candidates from across the world for both scholarships is an incredible honor.
Adebola Tolulope Adeoti expressed her gratitude to everyone who has supported and stood by her, expressed her honor at being acknowledged for the advocacy work she conducts, and promised to improve. “I’m grateful that the Foreign CommonWealth and Development Office has acknowledged the advocacy work I perform.
In order to meet the needs of vulnerable women and girls in rural areas in Nigeria, she stated, “I look forward to learning more about the interaction between gender studies, conflict, and human rights.”
I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who helped me reach my objective, especially my parents, my love, Hawa O., Wuraoluwa Soibi Ayodele, Olaoluwa Abagun, Richard, and Adamu. Added she.⠀
