- A Nigerian lady succeeded in her department at LAUTECH against all odds and became its first-ever first-class graduate
- Mary revealed that she was almost frustrated at her 100 level as people said that her department was difficult
- With God on her side, the young lady marched on and finally achieved what she wanted in her 500 level
A Nigerian lady, Mary Jesulade, has gone on LinkedIn page to narrate how she broke a 21-year-old jinx in her department.
She stated that getting admission into the university was not an easy one for her. Mary revealed that right from the registration point, people said her department of biochemistry is a difficult one.
Take a switch
The lady said that since the department was created in 2000, there has never been a first-class graduate.

While people were trying to discourage her from going to the department, the lady told herself:
"People will always air their opinion on subject matters, but it's left to you to manage these opinions the best way you can and prove them right or wrong."
The young Nigerian lady revealed that she also told herself that she would do the unimaginable with God. She beat the odds and had first class at 100 level.
She made it!
Some senior colleagues who saw her result asked her to switch if she does not want her result ‘axed' but she stayed.
Despite the fact that her CGPA took a hit along the way, she bounded back and coasted to victory in her final year with a first-class.
