A remarkable Nigerian named Destiny Ogedegbe has been granted admission to Harvard University in the United States and Oxford University in the United Kingdom to pursue a Master of Law degree.
Destiny obtained multiple scholarships to finish his Master of Law (LLM) degree in addition to admission to highly elite universities. As one of just four Nigerians accepted to Harvard University, Destiny sent a comment on LinkedIn expressing his satisfaction.
“I’m one of four (4) Nigerians admitted this year to the Harvard Law School LLM Programme — the most competitive law programme in the world — on a scholarship,” he wrote on LinkedIn.
Destiny started his post-secondary education at the University of Benin in South-South Nigeria, where he graduated with honors and the title of top student. He also earned a distinguished first-class law degree there. He kept going and earned a first-class grade in law school.
Narrating how he was able to secure Master’s admission and scholarships into the two tough universities, Destiny said; “I tell this story and add that these are the only two schools I have ever applied to for graduate studies and I got into both.”
“That it happened this way, tells me something. They both did the right thing, I suspect, because this story is already written in the stars —this is merely the mortal manifestation of God’s ideal. I have no other explanation,” he added.
