However, when she stepped into the London School of Economics and Political Science, the journey seemed beautiful and at the same time challenging, exhilarating, and transformative.

Okafor said returning to school after a long break was a shock for her and the change was not smooth. She said the atmosphere was intense, everyone was very driven, and the amount of work i.e. classes, discussions, and writing assignments was huge.

She said she juggled both a part-time job as a video and podcast producer and her workload, which often exhausted her. Okafor expressed moments of doubt but a valuable piece of advice from her academic advisor gave her encouragement: “You have the power to choose your own path.”



Okafor stated that those words became her guiding light adding that she learned the journey is as valuable as the destination, and she embraced the challenges and turns rather than fixating solely on the result.

She said she also rediscovered the importance of slowing down. Okafor said she traveled, explored outside the work and academic stress, and reconnected with herself beyond achievements.

While at the university, Okafor said she found a community that enriched her journey beyond measure that from spirited discussions to shared moments of growth, each encounter left an indelible mark on her heart.

Okafor especially thanked her Professor Shakuntala Banaji, whose teachings sparked a fire within her for critical thinking and analysis toward a better world.

She stated that she is filled with gratitude for the experiences and connections she gained at LSE adding that From being featured in her set graduation video to contributing to the vibrant university community, each moment is a testament to her resilience and growth.

Looking ahead, Okafor said she is carrying with her the invaluable lessons she learned at the university. She said she is eager to embrace the unknown, to continue savoring the journey, and to celebrate every milestone along the way.
