her as an in­tel­li­gent girl. Imogu seems to be most com­fort­able in a zone of­ten dreaded by many stu­dents. At the 2018 BHC grad­u­a­tion, Imogu was recog­nised for her love and de­ter­mi­na­tion to de­mys­tify the ‘almighty’ math­e­mat­ics with award of the Best Stu­dent in Math­e­mat­ics.

The young Math­e­ma­ti­cian did not only prove her met­tle within her ter­ri­tory, Nige­ria, but also earned her­self an in­ter­na­tional recog­ni­tion by ob­tain­ing the high­est score in SAT.

Called up the se­cond time to the podium to be recog­nised and re­warded for not just her ex­cep­tional per­for­mance in the in­ter­na­tional ex­am­i­na­tion but also for win­ning for her­self a 65,000 Dol­lars schol­ar­ship to study abroad, Michelle who seems to be thread­ing on a fa­mil­iar ter­rain, said that she fin­ished her sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion with a sim­i­lar award. On what she did dif­fer­ently, Imogu who wants to study elec­tri­cal elec­tron­ics, said, “I re­ally worked hard but BHC re­ally pushed me to do more be­cause I had done SAT but didn’t score as high as this. “My ad­vice to the youths is that Maths re­quires a lot of fo­cus and the best ap­proach is to start from the ba­sics. Once you un­der­stand the ba­sics, you can han­dle any other stage. And for the girls, I want to say, don’t be afraid to do sci­ence sub­jects. You can ac­tu­ally do bet­ter if you push your­selves to. Study hard and never leave out the God fac­tor in ev­ery­thing you do”, Imogu ad­vised.
