Young Nigerian Lady bags Bachelor’s degree from university, reject work offers from companies to become a teacher in the village

An exceptional Nigerian Lady, Adelaja Oluwademilade has resolved to impact her community as a classroom teacher despite getting several offers from companies around Nigeria.

Adelaja Oluwademilade graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from Covenant University, South-West, Nigeria. In a post she shared on LinkedIn, she noted that she had always wanted to become a teacher ever since she graduated.

“When I finished from Covenant University last year, I knew I wanted to become a teacher but the peer pressure from seeing my friends and coursemates work in big offices made me shy away from teaching. I wanted to work in an office first before becoming a teacher,” she said.

She revealed that she applied for some jobs and got several offers but they are all not satisfactory. She finally took up a teaching role in a rural area in Lagos, Nigeria.

“I finally took up a teaching role in a rural area in Lagos. It was one of the easiest decisions I ever made in my life. My mum suggested some private schools that would be willing to pay me to teach but I refused to work there,” she narrated.

” I always wanted to work in a place where I would feel happy and fulfilled everyday and that’s exactly how I feel right now. My experience as a teacher so far has been amazing. Teaching is my service to God and Humanity and I don’t take it for granted,” she added.

“He told me that his mum could not afford to put him in school but he wants to go to school. In his words in Yoruba; “e jo ma, mo fe lo school” (please ma, I want to go to school). I posted his story on my Instagram and that same day someone offered to pay his fees for his first year (JSS1),” she narrated.

“It’s very possible to do great things from a small place,” Oluwademilade added.
