The project Students Meet Graduate was birth out of my desire to ensure that outgoing secondary students are prepared before they begin the next phase of their life as an undergraduate.
Upon my admission as an undergraduate, I had no prior knowledge as to what to expect when I get into the university and this made me make poor choices in several areas of my life in my first year in school. I started developing myself in my 300 Level and because I have not stopped developing myself, I have been able to make better choices that have not just helped me but also people around me.
This is the pilot of this project and it will start with secondary schools in Anambra Central Senatorial Zone, Anambra State. This is my contribution to the community I currently reside. I hope to continue on an annual basis and expand it nationwide and internationally.
The pilot project is tagged A Guide to Life at the University.
The project covers;
- Knowing your Career Path and Goal Setting
- Social and Relationship Matters
- Academic, Health and Spiritual Development
- Financial Responsibility
- Capacity Building
