    Tell us about your background.

    My family believes in academic success, and I am happy that I have been able to deliver  from primary school to this point. I had my secondary school education at Deluxe Pacesetter College, Ajuwon, where I graduated as the overall best graduating student. Growing up, I was trained to be hard-working, resilient, and never to give up. I was exposed to various challenges as I progressed through life. I strongly believe that every great achievement starts with a dream or a desire to get it done, which calls for one to possess the right mentality, as life has a way of going in the direction of our thoughts. Over the years, such a mindset has played a big role in my life.

     What sparked your interest in Mechanical Engineering?

    Back in secondary school, I loved cars. So, I assumed mechanical engineering was only linked to cars, which pushed me to study the course. On proceeding to the university, I realised that even though automobile is a relevant field in mechanical engineering, there are still other relevant sections of mechanical engineering such as energy systems, biomechanics, aerodynamics, etc.
