On Friday, November 26, Oluyale Juliet, a young woman from the Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA), celebrated her first-class degree with a 4.89 CGPA on LinkedIn.
But there was more. Her twin sister, Kehinde, received a 4.82 CGPA at the same university, making her a first-class honors graduate as well. A prayer for all the other would-be identical twins was also offered.
My biggest challenge in school.
Reliving her past days, Juliet said a sickness made her absent from school for whole two months as people were really concerned about her.
Coming back to school with a very determined mind, the lady read hard, wrote make-up tests, and submitted all missed assignments to keep up.
The lady who got a degree in building technology said she never vied to be the best but to continually be excellent in all that she did in school.
We are planning to further our education
Juliet said that while she and her sister are open to opportunities in architecture, they are also planning on how to further their education.
She thanked everyone who supported her in the journey to making her academic dream a reality, saying they were all her inspiration.

“Congratulations. You are one of the most meticulous, diligent and humble person I have met. The day you designed that Burj Al Arab building concept within few hours, I was super convinced that you’re extremely good.”
