A Nigerian excelled abroad

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a young Nigerian lady, Aisha Janki Akinola, was elected as the vice president welfare of the student association at the University of Edinburgh.

On Monday, May 24, the lady revealed how she will officially start carrying out her duties, adding that the development has left her with great mixed feelings.

Aisha said that though she was chosen, she has the fear that she may not be able to meet people’s expectations.

The young lady went ahead to say:

“I know, many people think I am not good enough even though I am in a space that I deserve to occupy. I think it’s the imposter syndrome kicking in. And I’m sure many of you can relate.”
