Young Nigerian lady, Queen Tardoo, has been said to be the first lady to study Aeronautical Engineering in Benue state where she hails from.
In an interview with Wisdom Nwedene, Tardoo who had earlier bagged a degree in Computer Science at Benue State University shared her inspiring story, challenges she experienced studying the course in Philippines and how she finally became an Aeronautic Engineer.
The 28-year-old revealed that she achieved the feat through determination, perseverance, hard work and support from her family and friends, especially her mum.
'There were a lot of challenges, being a black person in an Asian country isn’t always great. You experience a lot of racism and it affects you as a student. Also, being female in a field that is considered to be for the male gender is also not easy. You have to prove yourself all the time, you are always stereotyped to be not competent enough. Aeronautical engineering itself is very challenging. You have to study extra hard and make a lot of sacrifices, but it will always be worth it in the end', Queen D. Tardoo says.

Talking about projects she's worked on, the pretty lady who is still in Philippines said:
'I worked on a few projects while in school both academic and extra curricular ones. Hence, I am the reigning Miss Holy Angel University, Philippines. I am always involved in one project or the other. But, the one project I am most proud of is my final research work. I worked on a birdstrike prevention project for my final research in 5th year. A project feasibility study which had to do with the use of laser lights to prevent bird-aircraft crash.(birdstrikes). And this particular project won me a medal as the best thesis of the year 2019 in the Aeronautical engineering department of Holy Angel University, Philippines.'
