25-year-old Nigerian Fathia Ayodele Kareem, breaks record at Ghana varsity

A Nigerian, Fathia Kareem, has set a
record at the School of Medical Sciences of the Kwame Nkrumah University
of Science and Technology, Ghana, breaking its academic history.

For her feat, she received 12 out of 15
awards presented during the oath-swearing and induction ceremony for
fresh doctors of the institution last Saturday.
Kareem, 25, is an alumnus of the Wesley Girls High School.
It was a happy and proud moment for
family and friends when she took several turns to receive the awards in
the 55-year-old ivory tower.
When asked if she expected to get the
number of awards, she said, “Yes and No. Yes because I worked hard by
studying and no because I did not expect to receive so many awards.”
Of late, many Nigerians have
distinguished themselves in many overseas universities, with some of
them emerging as valedictorians of their schools.
