A 22-year-old brilliant Nigerian lady by the name of Karen (Car-en) Elisha-Wigwe has celebrated bagging a Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Miami University College of Engineering and Computing, Ohio, United States.

Karen narrated on her Linkedin that she had left Nigeria to further her education in the United States at the age of 18. Four years after she enrolled at the Miami University College of Engineering and Computing in Ohio, she graduated Cum Laude as a Mechanical Engineer with 3.70 out of a possible 4.00-grade point.

“Indeed it has been an enlightening and amazing journey, one of self-discovery, character building, and establishing many intentional and unintentional but all the same exceptional relationships,” she wrote about her experience at the school.

Sharing images of her graduation ceremony, she noted that during her time as a student of the Miami University College, she served and enjoyed support from various communities such as the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) among others.
