For the previous three years, he claimed, “I applied to over 67 scholarships. received 63 rejections, 3 reserve list placements, and one nomination in total. My One Yes, as my father remarked, was entirely worthwhile. I’ll have to clarify and provide more information in my next blog.
Regarding the scholarship Chibuzor Nwokafor received, he stated that his school only had seven places available and that he was the eleventh person on the recommended list, but he was unable to explain how he was chosen.
“There were 7 places available at my school, and I was the 11th nominee. I’m not sure how that took place. I’m sure that God did that, he said.
Chibuzor praised God for making success possible as well as everyone who helped him on his path to success. Cheers, Chibuzor Nwokafor!
