Get Out of the Underdog Feeling

In this piece, Ikwuka challenges students that could not get admission into Nigeria's leading universities not to give up. His message is simple: even if you could not get into UI, UNN, ABU, FUTO, etc and find yourself in some smaller schools, it should not change anything. Yes, they may be seen as underdogs but you can make those small schools giants of the future.

Then, he has algebra, pushing students to make efforts even small ones: 1^365 = 1 and 1.01^365 = 38. If you take no action in a year, nothing changes. But if you take even a small effort, the number moves from 1 to 38. That is amazing.
