Inspiring Woman: Tosin Ototoju

I just read this interview with Tosin Otitoju on BellaNaija. Tosin is an incredibly accomplished woman whose story is very inspiring.

She graduated from Queens College, Lagos in 1996 with the best SSCE results in the entire country, graduated top of her Electrical Engineering class at Howard University in the U.S and was accepted to a PhD program at CalTech. On top of that, she was awarded a national honour in 2004.

Despite achieving immense academic success, she had the courage to take a break from her PhD program to explore other interests. So many of us get caught up by the trappings of success and stick with life choices which we no longer find fulfilling.
