Lilian Nwekwo Emerges As The Best Graduating Student In The Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Enugu State
Lilian Nwekwo has emerged as the best graduating student in the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, Enugu State for the 2018/2019 academic session. In an interview with a news reporter, she explained that she loved the health profession and has interest in drug production, procurement, and dispensing which explains the reason she decided to study Pharmacy.
She expressed gratitude to God and her family for a good foundation as she had the opportunity to attend prestigious schools which offered her a good stepping stone. “I made four As, four Bs and one C4 in my West African Senior School Certificate Examination result,” she said.
She revealed that right from her first year she had always wanted to graduate with a First Class and be the best she could. On her reading pattern, she stated that she mainly reads at the school library, sometimes, in the hostel as she has roommates who wouldn’t disturb; adding that in terms of reading, she is not really a midnight person and likes her sleep.
Lilian made 20 distinctions out of 21 distinctions in the professional Pharmacy courses. On how she was able to ensure that her academic performance did not drop, she said, “I tried to be consistent because I discovered that consistency would beat intensity 100 per cent of the time. So, I put in hours daily to read no matter how little.”
She also revealed that she had a social life at school but it was done with a balance as all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy and that having a to-do list for each day as well as good and supportive friends helped her stay on track
She advised prospective pharmacy students to always work hard, pray, keep at it, and strive to be better as there’s always room for more.
