Somadina graduated with a perfect CGPA of 5.0, an achievement that made her a record holder in the school.
Somadina broke a record in Russia as she was the first foreign student to graduate with a perfect CGPA at Rostov State Medical University.
In a Twitter post, Somadina said becoming the valedictorian student in her set was never easy.
“I’m now a graduate and a doctor, thank God. So I graduated from Rostov State Medical University in Russia with the highest GPA (5.0/5.0). I was equally the valedictorian for my graduation. It was never easy but I persevered to the very end.”
In a separate interview with Tribune Newspaper, Somadina recalled that she has always been a brilliant student.
“I did my secondary school at Godfirst International Secondary School in Abia State. In 2014, I graduated from secondary school with a WAEC result of six As and three B2s. I have been a bright student and always maintained the first position throughout my secondary school education.”
Interestingly, Somadina took her courses in the Russian language. She said she studied for long hours to become a first-class graduate.
“In medical school, during school periods, I study for 8-10 hours mostly. The reason I studied for long hours is because I’m a slow reader. I write notes when I’m studying, and I retain a lot of information when I write notes. Studying in the Russian language needs translations for words that I don’t know — so, sometimes, I would have to watch videos on YouTube that explain the topic that I was reading.”
