Cheers to my milestone accomplishment (PhD at 26 🤩)🎉🎉🎉🎉

I’m overly excited to have successfully completed my PhD journey which began exactly 46 months ago. My research focused on investigating the behaviour of materials under extreme conditions such as high temperature and pressure, to help enrich our knowledge of their chemical and structural properties.

Honestly, there have been both high and low times throughout this journey. A few years into my PhD program, I lost my father (Late Chief Dan Ukpai Mba Ukoji) who was my greatest cheerleader. I literally felt my world crashing down on me when I was notified of his demise.

To make matters worst, I couldn’t be present for his funeral due to the COVID travel restrictions. That was indeed the lowest time of my PhD journey.
