Overall UNILAG Best Graduating Student, Alimi Ibraheem

Mr. Alimi said “My parents and extended family thought I was going to study Medicine due to my smartness.” He countined “I knew I couldn’t cope with medicine due to my fear of blood, mutilated bodies, human parts, and all the situations doctors face. My next option was engineering because growing up, I loved cars and had a dream of building my own car and I also love Mathematics. So, Mechanical Engineering felt like the perfect choice.”

After which the overall UNILAG best graduating student added, “My five years experience in the University had its moments, the good and bad ones. Mechanical Engineering itself was very demanding and stressful right from the onset. The rigorous and voluminous lab reports are an important highlight. I was able to make new friends and families, further extending my connections.”

She showcase her brilliancy as a disipline Muslim daughter who have a goal and focus. Like she said,

“ I set a target of 5.0 for myself every semester. There are some semesters where I did well and some I didn’t. For every heartbeat before checking my result, to all kinds of emotions after checking it, I say Alhamdulillah. Sometimes I do feel discouraged about having a first class, but my mentor always encouraged and motivated me not to give up and always prayed to Allah for strength. I’m grateful. After seeing my final results, I was happy. Another thing that gave me joy was that, out of five first class graduates in my department, four of us are Muslims. It was a prayer that came true and I’m very grateful to Allah and to everyone that was part of my success story.”
