There are many Nigerians abroad who keep flying the nation’s flag high. Emmanuel Ohuabunma is one of those people as he graduated as the best student at John Hopkins University.
He was said to have been the first African to make a 3.98/4.00 GPA in neuroscience in the institution. In 2017, he won a scholarship from Yale University to study medicine.
A very important part of his story was that he became a member of Phi Beta Kappa Society, a group that has 17 US presidents, 37 US Supreme Court justices, and 136 Nobel winners as members.
According to Christine Noah, North Carolina coordinator of the society, he said that the Nigerian would be an invaluable addition to the group.
In reaction to his membership, Emmanuel said: "I think the society in itself opens doors to the connections one needs to excel as a professional in any field. It is such an honor to be inducted into a society filled with people of this caliber. It is the culmination of a lot of hard work and perseverance during my time at Hopkins."
