“I was surprised to be named the Valedictorian because I never competed to be the best, I only strive for perpetual excellent and fortunately other things were added to me,” she said.

Taiwo added that: “In retrospect, I remembered how I was totally away from school for more than two months. Myself, my parents, doctors, and colleagues were all so scared and worried.

“I cried on several occasions that God should heal me so I can return to school. I never gave up hope, I was determined.

“I eventually returned to school to do marathon reading, submitted all assignments, did some make-up test and wrote the exam for that semester. It was the most challenging period of my life” Taiwo said.

She further advised that In everything one does, one should try as much as possible to deliver the utmost quality, whether at school or workplace.
