Roqibat mentioned that in all the academic settings she has found herself in, she has always been termed a nerd as she is one of the few people who studied tirelessly and engaged in the extra work to achieve an extraordinary academic feat.

She said during one of her classes, a lecturer informed the students that no student had achieved a First Class in the Faculty for over 30 years while at the same time encouraging them to achieve the feat.

Roqibat said even with the discouraging statement, she was determined to achieve a First Class and she put in her utmost effort to accomplish the goal. She said she had a first-class grade point in her first year at the university but it dropped in the second year.
