Glory Eniola, a Nigerian, emerges the best freshman nursing student at a US university


Eniola Glory, an eighteen-year-old Nigerian, has been named the top freshman nursing student at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, USA.

Eniola, a twin from Ijebu-Jesha in Osun State, praised God and her parents for the opportunity in a phone conversation with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) from the United States.

The prize was granted to her for being the best in Nursing in the institution’s freshman session.

The medal states, “ACADEMIC HONORS are hereby awarded to GLORY AYOBAMI ENIOLA for superior academic achievement as a member of the Southern Illinois University Carbondale freshman class.”

She committed to keep up the pace and enhance her performance in order to win the overall prizes after her studies were finished.

NAN remembers that Eniola and her twin sister, Grace, were admitted to Southern Illinois University Carbondale, USA, to study Nursing during the 2022/2023 admittance year and have both maintained unheard-of marks.

During the session’s award ceremony, Eniola was presented with the award in full view of the esteemed institution’s executive team.

The awardee used her intellect and smarts, which have become part of the Nigerian fabric, particularly as witnessed in our youths around the world, to defeat her competitors and win the award.

She did, however, dedicate the medal to her father, Obayomi Eniola, who she credits with instilling the Nigerian culture in her children.

Eniola stated that she has always been passionate about assisting people, particularly in areas of health, and that nursing as a career may help her realize her vision.

The awardee stated that despite various hurdles along the way, she was determined to become the greatest in the institution’s nursing school.

“I couldn’t believe it when I heard my name, and tears streamed down my face as I walked up to the podium to receive the certificate.”

“I am proud of our parents; I realized that hard work and dedication are the ultimate goals in everything we strive for.” “I felt fulfilled and satisfied,” she stated.

According to the Nigerian pride, she knew her parents had worked so hard to support her through her studies and would be overjoyed at her accomplishment.

Eniola and her twin sister, without a doubt, are excited to pursue their Nursing careers in Nigeria, particularly in Osun state, where they hope to positively contribute their quota to the improvement of healthcare in the state upon conclusion of their studies, according to the awardee.

She claimed that paying their fees and tuition has always been a hassle, negatively impacting their performance.

As a measure of encouragement, Eniola has urged to Gov. Ademola Adeleke of Osun state to assist their parents in areas of assistance, particularly in their tuition.
