A Nigerian lady, Adebola Adeyemi, has given credence to the fact that delay is not denial when she was finally inducted into the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE).
Adeyemi was inducted into NSE on Wednesday, February 26, after becoming an electronic and electrical engineer.
Legit.ng notes that before becoming an engineer, a subject denied Adeyemi three admissions consecutively into pre-degree programme.
The engineer, who took to her LinkedIn page to make the disclosure, said she had to summon the courage to pick up admission letter into Osun State Polytechnic, Iree.
She said while in the polytechnic, she was given admission into pre-degree at Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomoso, to study physics.
Adeyemi said: "I accepted physics but I wasn't comfortable because it wasn't what I wanted to practice, this made me study hard and I was able to cross into the department of my choice (Electronic and Electrical Engineering) the second year."
In other news, in 2019, LaShyra Nolen popularly known as Lash became the first black woman to be elected president at Harvard Medical School (HMS).
Lash, who was born in Compton, California, said she found inspiration in the strength of women around her while growing up.
The medical student made the disclosure in an interview with Teen Vogue in which she said being the first black woman to be elected president of HMS would allow her to create opportunity for others like her to hold positions of leadership at the institution.
Lash said while applying to HMS, she did not see people who looked like her in student council or position of leadership.
She said it is important to show that black people can also be the face of a university.
