Esther Nwankwo wrote: “According to him, his culture does not favor the education of female children, also because of economical limitations.”

Esther said that it was her drive to excel that prompted her to take on menial jobs as a means of paying for her education.

The first-class graduate admitted that she was pessimistic about her future, but she also said that her will to excel was what kept her going. She continued by saying that she was tenacious and prepared to make sacrifices for achievement.

I took on multiple low-paying jobs to save money for higher education, Esther said, adding that when she made a step, God provided for her.

Esther earned a national diploma (ND), and from the University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN), she went on to get a BSc in Accounting.
