“I am a 100-level student of Information Science and Media Studies (ISMS) School of Media and Communication, Pan-Atlantic University. I want to become a professional graphics designer after school.
They came to my school Graceland College but at the time I did not show much interest. It was when I had gone to study for an A' Levels programme at Qaardan Educational Foundation that Dr. Okafor told me that I am good at graphics and some other IT related subjects and that she would like for me to study here. So I decided to take a look at it, then I applied and got a scholarship eventually.
I am excited about the forthcoming matriculation ceremony though I will be attending alone. This is because my family resides in the east. It will not be easy to have them all come from the east.
At SMC I have met nice teachers, tough subjects, very good labs so I get to learn a lot of things. There are very good computers in the lab so I get to practice a lot especially with the Mac. There are also good drawing pads. The school's facilty is very welcoming and very nice." – Okoye Gabriel Ikechukwu 100 level student of Information Science and Media Studies (ISMS).
