About the Millennium Fellow
I am a student of Lagos state university currently studying microbiology with almost intention of professional intention of being a medical practitioner so as to amass success and wealth in the profession. All of this coupled with my skeptical thought about issues relating with service to humanity assuming it was just a polical propaganda. Not until I came across the words of the incumbent vice-president of nigeria, he said that " I have learnt that success is more easily attainable than greatness.but I think that the path of greatness is self-sacrifice for the Goodness of others" -professor yemi osinbajo. This words changed my passion,goal,behaviour, it motivated me to think that the thought of self sacrfice will bring about success and greatness.
Ever since I joined the SDGs movement in my school and I am currently a faculty coordinator.
In addition my priority now is to become medical practitioner to accomplish the Goal 3 of the SDGs.
