“Indeed dreams do come through, never settle for less. Hard work pays. Despite all hurdles I made it. I am proud; I am my father’s daughter.” Speaking on her challenges, the latest graduate said, “I must confess, being a foreigner was not easy at first.

“Also, the system was different from Nigeria’s. We had to go to school from Monday till Sunday, spending at least eight hours. But, above all, I am glad I made my country, state and my community proud,” a visibly elated Miss Oche told IDOMA VOICE.
