"In 2019, my friend Uche Pedro and I were catching up in her house and she told me she had enrolled at Harvard Kennedy School #HKS I was super excited to learn that my very own dear friend was admitted to such a prestigious school.
"In fact I was comfortable living vicariously through Uche's Harvard experience and just like my brother, she nudged me to apply to the same school.
"Well, a few weeks after our catch-up, Uche followed up with an email about this degree program and I thought, “perhaps I should consider applying”.
"Fast Forward to this year. Uche graduated in the year 2020 MC/MPA and I graduated in the year 2021 MC/MPA, here’s a picture of us officially graduating on the same day (May 29, 2022) - due to the pandemic."
