Moyinoluwa revealed that she is going for computer engineering/computer science at the university level because computer-related things have always fascinated her.

I'm sad about ASUU strike

The teenager added that she is sad about the ongoing Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) strike as many of her seniors are stuck because of the situation. She implored parents to encourage their kids in other crafts apart from academics to give them an edge.

Speaking about mathematics, she said she loves the subject because once a person familiarises themselves with the concepts, they could always apply them to solve any question.
