Grace O. Idjighere is a final year student of the University of Benin. She is studying Mathematics. She was recently awarded the first prize in the just concluded Uniben Spelling Bee competition.
She shared her thoughts with us and we would love to share them with you.
I always took seriously every word that I came across. I had challenges pertaining to time. I also wasn’t easy balancing the Bee preparation with my academic works especially
the stress of final year. It turned out to be that God showed up for me on stage. Even when I was getting oppressed somehow, God stood for me on stage and saw me through. It was practically grace at work. I learned to involve God first before taking any step in life. God hears and answers prayers. He always speaks but the ball is in our court to decide whether we want to put our hearts in a position that will allow us stay sensitive to His voice. God be praised. I am grateful to Him.”
We celebrate you, Grace Idjighere. Keep shining. We hope you are challenged. From all of us at TopTeens, we say “Go For That Opportunity, Yes You Can!
