Nigerian Graduate, Aramide, Secures Her Harvard Dream As She Reaches Target Of Donations
It’s been some days since the hashtag #GetAramideToHarvard took over the wave of the internet. The Nigerian Lady has sought for help as she gains admission into Harvard University and fortunately, she has reached the target of her donations, a sum of sixty eight thousand dollars ($68,000).
Aramide Akintimehin, a first class graduate of Economics from Covenant University, has been said to have an unbridled passion for teaching. For this, she started a Tuition- free school called Talent Mine Academy where she impacts knowledge and care for out-of-school children.
To further broaden her horizon, she applied for a Master’s in Teaching and Learning Program and got the admission. Harvard University relieved her of $19,000 out of the $85,000 fees.
She disclosed the breakthrough in the donations on Twitter as she calls for a stop to it.
She tweets: ‼️DISCLAIMER‼️
