My path to a PhD in Engineering was long but filled with grace. It all started as a son of a fisherman paddling canoe across the river Benue, Nigeria.
My parents had no formal education but place premium on education.
Today, I walked the stage at the University of New South Wales, Australia for the conferment of the highest educational qualification — PhD.
Like any other aspiration, the path was not straight. There were ups and downs. There were moments of excitement and discouragement.
I am grateful to all the people that supported me along this journey: family, supervisors and friends. Your contributions and sacrifices made this milestone possible.
To the young person out there with a dream, this milestone is dedicated to you. Your dreams are valid. Remain committed and give what it takes to make your dream a reality.
