Adebimpe Daniells Graduates as Overall Best in Rutgers University

A Nigerian, Adebimpe Daniells recently finished as the 2017 Graduating set of Rutgers University-Newark USA with a First Class in Information System.

According to reports, she finished as the overall best student in the 2017 graduating set at the State University of New Jersey.

She also presented the valedictory speech on behalf of the set in March.

She revealed in the lecture titled, Half of the story is yet to be told, that her education was sponsored by community aid.

Daniells posted a full text of the speech on her LinkedIn page.

She said: “I am saying this with all passion because I am a product of community aid. As a little girl who grew up in Lagos, Nigeria in Africa, I was born into the adventure of uncertainty and the grandeur of unrealistic aspirations of a low-income home in a gender-biased society.

“Although my father knew the importance of education, he could not afford to give all his children equal educational opportunity. My education was put on hold for my brother’s, while I searched for alternative means of survival.

“I persisted! I am fortunate to be here amongst you through scholarships, which would have been impossible if the community didn’t give back.

“In light of this, permit me to seize this opportunity to acknowledge the incredible support and help I got from my family, mentors and teachers.

“I honestly wish I could say all their names, but we would be here the whole day and am sure you wouldn’t want that. My deepest gratitude goes to my parents, my husband and my children. This is your moment, too. I wouldn’t be on this stage without your help, love and support.”
