I think my biggest What if would have to be, What if i had gone to University of Lagos and not Uniben.
I always attribute my down to earth attitude to my 5years in Benin, i lived a "real" life, i remember coming home to Lagos during holidays and shaking my head at how all my Unilag friends acted.
I wanted to go to Unilag so bad but my Jamb Score didn't make the cut off, i missed it by 3marks even though i made 273, the cutoff for engineering was 276 and they refused to give me admission.
SO my dad went to Benin and changed my first choice University to Uniben.
I remember how much i hated it at first, i used to turn my nose up at everyone around me like i was better than them because i was from lagos.
Soon i came to realize how that simple change in the path of my life impacted me in every way positively.
I am light hearted, full of life, very real and i mix well with in all situations. I mixed with people from all works of life in Uniben and i realized that the world doesn't revolve around material things.
Friendship in Lagos was shallow, pretentious and people just wanted what they could get from you, compared to what i experienced in University.
The difference between the friendships i made in my NYSC life and University is what id like to call 7UP.
What if i have gone to Unilag???????
Well i wonder who id be today
