A young determined Nigerian lady, Oni Oluwafunmilayo Ayobami, has celebrated after beating over 50,000 students to win both the UK Government Chevening Scholarship and the Irish Government Scholarship on the same day.
Oni who graduated with second-class lower from the Tai Solarin University of Education (TASUED) was part of the only 2% of 51,840 applicants to win the United Kingdom’s Chevening Scholarship in 2022. She, at the same time, got selected for Irish Government Scholarship.
Celebrating her achievements in her recent LinkedIn post, where she shared her double blessings, she said she doubted herself due to her Bachelor’s degree classification, urging individuals with similar class of degree not to give up.
“For years, I doubted my ability to bag any scholarship for my Master’s degree because many scholarship granting organizations often stated clearly that they would rather a minimum of 2:1.
“This year, I was awarded the Chevening Scholarship and the Irish Aid scholarship on the same day. See God!” she said.
She hopes her experience encourages people in a similar situation as her not to give up despite the difficulties.
“So, if you have a 2:2 like me, the journey might be slightly tougher but the world is your oyster! Apply!!!!!”, she said.
