Meet Nkechinyere Chidi-Ogbolu, a smart 22-year-old who recently received a Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of California, USA.

She is a Nigerian who began her academic career at the age of 14 when she was accepted to Howard University to pursue her Bachelor’s degree.

According to her statements to Punch,“I have always been somewhat academically gifted. But, I would not describe myself as a genius. I just found the right information and made use of it. My parents are also instrumental to that. My mum would look for information and act on it.”

She took to LinkedIn to celebrate her wonderful accomplishment, stating that her Ph.D. was the most stressful and difficult thing she had ever done.

In her words, she said “With all sincerity, this Ph.D. journey was the most stressful and challenging thing I have ever put myself through. They say when you do a Ph.D., you learn to fail… they have never told a lie for real y’all.”
