A Nigerian man has taken to his social media to celebrate a major achievement in his life.
The man identified as Dr. Kelechukwu Onwukamike, has 2 PHDs in Chemistry but there was a time in his life when his teacher mocked his ability to make an “A” in their exams.
Dr. Kelechukwu recalled the bitter experience and used his story to inspire his readers, saying they should not give up in life.
His post on LinkedIn read ;
Is this how you are going to have an A-grade in Chemistry?
It was 2007, practical exam for GCE A-level Chemistry exam.
I had told my teacher then that I would make an A-grade in the subject; not the most easiest subject to get an A-grade.
On the day of the practicals, the teacher came to my desk, looked at my work and shook his head in dismay.
I was worried, disturbed, couldnt figure out where I had gone wrong.
Then the exam was over and just as I was about to leave the hall, my teacher approached me with one comment “Is this how you are going to have an A-grade in Chemistry”?
Tell my teacher:
5months after, the results were released, I had a A-grade.
4years later, in 2011 I graduated with a First Class degree in Chemistry.
12 years later, in 2019 I graduated with a Double PhD degree in Chemistry
13 years later, in 2020, I got the Germany best PhD award in Chemistry.
So dear #mentees #connections #linkedinfam do you have anyone that still doubt your capability? Go tell them that very soon, they will be shocked of what you will become.
For no one can limit what you can become-
If you think you can, you are correct.
If you think you can´t, you are correct.
Choose your own “correct”.
Till we all win.
