A young female student Somtochi Stella Amuche has broken the jinx by defying all odds to finish with first-class from Engineering thereby becoming the first female student to do so. She is indeed a perfect definition of beauty with brain.
She recently broke the 41-year-old academic record of the Federal University of Technology Owerri, FUTO by becoming the first female student to bag a first-class in the faculty of Engineering at the prestigious institution.
She is a rare gem, and one among bright Nigerian ladies who are changing the narrative about women.
Engineering is a field that is usually dominated by men and as such Somtochi proved herself to be up to the task and able to compete with her counterparts from the opposite gender.
Somtochi is the second child of Dr. Onyekwere Okpara and Mrs. Chinwe Ijeoma Ok para. Mr Okpara was a former at the Rector of Abia State Polytechnic and while Mrs Okpara a Banker.
She must be one of the brilliant women on earth to have achieved such academic feat in a highly technical field such as Engineering at a prestigious school as FUTO.
She started her journey to getting a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering six years ago after emerging as the best graduating student from her secondary school, the Regina Paris College, Abuja with 8 A’s (Distinction ) in the 2015 West African Examination Council.
In the same year she received an Award in excellence as the best graduating secondary school student in the Federal Capital Territory given by the National University Commission.
That was not all she became one among nine exceptionally gifted students picked randomly globally to participate in the Google Andela Learning Community (ALC) Programme in Information Communications Technology/Artificial Intelligence which was held in Mountain View, California, United States
