21 year-old Idongesit Eseneyen has emerged the youngest and the best graduating medical student of the University of Uyo.
Idongesit was said to have gained admission into the institution at the age of 15.
According to Idongesit, the award came as a surprise.
In her own words, “The award for best graduating doctor in Pharmacology came as a surprise, I wasn’t expecting it but I am happy. I got inspired to study medicine when I was very little due to my frequent visits to the hospital because my mum is a nurse, and also because of the desire I have to make a difference in people’s lives. I look forward to serving humanity.”
