I am grateful I still have her to cheer me up amid times when it looks impossible.

Success attributes much of his success to his mother’s unwavering support and the guidance of his mentors at Miva. “I have one of the best looking after me as a success advisor. Mr. Enoch Israel is part of my support system and the day I got assigned to him as my success advisor, I can tell you that before any challenge arises, he is always on top of all of them,” he expressed, his appreciation evident in his words.

Success’s study pattern reflects his disciplined approach to learning, allocating specific times for study sessions during weekdays and dedicating longer hours on weekends for research and engagement with course materials and the faculty. “I have access to literally everything I need to make studying fun for me,” he shared enthusiastically.

Beyond his academic pursuits, Success finds solace in physical fitness, culinary adventures, and music. “When I’m not in my house, I am to be found at the gym,” he shared, highlighting his passion for sports. “I also love to discover restaurants and indulge in music and entertainment.”
