Itunuoluwa stated that she was never motivated to study and was frequent with classes but she managed to score excellent grades. ” l was on cruise control, I only went to classes when I felt like, never rushed for anything but somehow I had good grades (all A’s and 2 B’s),” she said.

She further stated that in her second year, even though she faced a major setback, she was still able to maintain a first-class grade. Itunulouwa said she became more serious in her third year, determined to excel both in and out of the classroom.

Itunuoluwa mentioned that balancing coursework with extracurricular activities was challenging for her but with the support of her mentors and peers, she was able to cope. However, she said even though she maintained a good grade, she still never scored her desired result.


Itunulouwa stated that though the academic journey has been a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows, she emerged stronger, more resilient, and more determined than ever before. She said winning the best project award is a testament to her hard work.

She stated that when she was assigned the project placement in the Department of Pharmaceutics and Pharmaceutical Technology, she was thrilled as it was a course she found intriguing until she started her topic.

Itunuoluwa’s topic was “Film-forming properties of Sorghum bicolor starch and HydroxyPropylMethylCellulose.” She said it was challenging due to the lack of adequate lighting in the institution, to the absence of designated project work time slots in the timetable.
