Fathia Kareem, a 25-year-old Nigerian, has set a record at the School of Medical Sciences of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Ghana, making a new academic history.

For her historic feat, she received 12 out of 15 awards presented during the oath-swearing and induction ceremony for fresh doctors of the institution last Saturday, August 27, 2016, reports Punch.

The new medical doctor, who is an alumnus of the Wesley Girls High School, provided a happy and proud moment for family and friends when she took several turns to receive the awards in the 55-year-old ivory tower.

When asked if she expected to get the number of awards, she said, “Yes and No. Yes because I worked hard by studying and no because I did not expect to receive so many awards.”

Of late, many Nigerians have distinguished themselves in many overseas universities, with some of them emerging as valedictorians of their schools.
