Meet Adeola Olubamiji, a Nigerian lady who made history as the first person of colour to complete a PhD programme in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon Canada.

The 33-year-old lady who currently works as a Lead Addictive Engineer at Burloak Technologies Inc in Dundas Ontario became an internet sensation when the highly motivational transcript of her graduation speech hits the web few days ago.

Adeola had a very humble background. She was the daughter of a pepper seller in Mokola Ibadan. As early as 10, she hawked pepper to help her mother raise money to feed the family.

She grew up to become a very brilliant student who graduated from Olabisi Onabanjo University with second class upper. She then proceeded to Finland for her Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering and after completion she got accepted into a PhD program at the University of Saskatchewan with 4-year scholarship.

See how she narrated her inspirational grass to grace story on her graduation day below:
