Nenuwa, who was actively involved in politics while in school, explained that she never allowed her post as the Speaker of the National Association of Technology Students, School of Technology, LASPOTECH chapter to distract her studies but rather studied more.
According to her, achieving such laudable feat is the fruit of lot of sacrifice and self-denial. Nenuwa said she avoided distractions on the campus, including having any romantic relationships with males, attending parties and succumbing to peer pressure to indulge in frivolities.
Sh said: “I never gave room for distractions. One, I did not get involved in any amorous affair with the opposite sex. Again, I developed a workable reading time table for myself; and I kept to it. My parents advised me to avoid peer presure but have a strong relationship with God and they provided all I needed to succeed in my academics because they know the importance of education.”
The Edo State-born Nenuwa got a cash reward for being the best graduating student in her department and also cash prize for emerging the best graduating student of the session by the LASPOTECH administration.
