Oluwatuyi Olowoyeye, a Nigerian, has graduated from the University of Debrecen in Hungary with a perfect GPA of 5.0 in his just concluded Masters Program.
The proud graduate shared this on his LinkedIn profile as he detailed his journey from his first degree to his future education plan.
He said, “As an undergraduate, I was just busy chasing after academics. In the end, I didn’t even finish with the first class.”
According to him, he was just focused on academics and not on other personal development skills but that changed as he moved to further his education.
Olowoyeye said, “Fast forward to my master’s program, both the one I just finished here and the one I didn’t complete back at home before I landed a fully-funded scholarship to study here in Hungary. I can say I didn’t waste any opportunity that crossed my path, I was also intentional about acquiring skills.
This time around, I’d many more things I took up as a challenge, accepted volunteering roles, embraced the opportunities to skill-up anywhere at any time, dared two major competitions and my team was a finalist in one of them, I offered to help people for free (this one didn’t leave me the same), above all, I took destiny very seriously.
Olowoyeye also revealed that he would continue to further his education as he is set to “delve into another phase of my academic endeavor at Iowa State University.”
