- Why I Applied To Minerva University( The School With The Lowest Acceptance Rate In The World). Do I Think I Would Get In?What Makes Minerva Different From Other Universities? I believe Minerva is the best university in the world. To begin with, Minerva adopts a global experience. Is Minerva Accredited? Yes. Minerva is accredited by the Western Senior College And University Commission Association Of Schools And Colleges (WASC). How Did I Discover Minerva University? The first time I heard about Minerva was in 11th grade. I had just been accepted to EducationUSA Abuja. A Minervian was a member of the group and she was sharing her story, of how she was accepted to Minerva despite her low SAT score and Waec result. What Inspired Me To Apply To Minerva? Then she said, “You should apply to Minerva, I think it’s a school for people like you..” For people like me? I laughed. And I asked her “Me? Minerva? With My Carton Brain?” Minerva is everything I have ever wanted. A chance to liberate me, a place to grow and develop my talents. One thing was clear to me after reading through their website for over 2 hours that night. MINERVA IS INTERESTED IN MY STORY. And that’s why I applied to this institution. I submitted my application yesterday. Yes! Congratulations to me. I finished my application early this month but I had to wait for my counselor to upload my documents. Overall, I think Minerva’s application process is interesting and unique. It provides an opportunity for you to define yourself and what matters to you. It helps you to critically think about different issues that are absent in most admission processes. The application process allows you to open up yourself to the admissions committee and I believe this is Minerva’s greatest strength. Do I Think I Would Get In? I don’t know! As I have mentioned a thousand times, Minerva is unique from other schools. The only person you have to compete with for a spot at Minerva is yourself. Once you have exceeded their bar, you will get in with financial aid. What Is My Advise To Those Applying To Minerva? Before you apply to Minerva, ask yourself these questions: Why do I want to attend Minerva? Am I ready to be rigorously challenged? Am I an extrovert(I will make another post regarding this)? Do I love to travel? Good luck to everyone applying to Minerva and other colleges. I know this period can be so stressful and exhausting, but be patient and work hard. God will do it for you!
- How To Seek And Build Knowledge From Good Sources1. Be Curious: Having a curious mind or being curious is the first step in gaining knowledge. A curious mind is filled with insightful questions and actively seeks answers. Take a look at your personality or reflect and see if you are naturally curious about the things around you, your community or anything you happen to come across. The questions you ask determine the kind of answers you receive and they lead you to the path of learning. When a curious mind hits a wall, they seek knowledge and when they find that knowledge, they melt down that wall. Therefore, curiosity is the road to lifelong learning. Ask and you shall receive, seek and you shall find.
- It’s My Birthday Today!It’s my birthday today! 365 days have passed since the last time I celebrated my last birthday. It still feels like yesterday and I cannot describe how fast time flies. Within the last 365 days, I have cried, laughed, danced, rejoiced, mourned, and learned crucial life lessons. But most importantly, I have become a better person and I have taken a step towards my life goals. This is an appreciation post for the life I have lived for the past 1 year.
- How To Make Fewer ComparisonsWhat Steps Did I Take To Make Fewer Comparisons? I Recognized That Everyone Is Flawed And Imperfect: I believe that the major cause of my inferiority complex was my inability to recognize that everyone is flawed and perfection is impossible. I wanted to change a lot of things about my life because I felt that these features and characteristics made me weird. But in reality, they made me unique. Everyone is flawed. I Helped Others. There is nothing better and more satisfying than reaching out and helping people. I believe that what matters at the end of everything is not what you have or your accomplishments, it’s about who you have helped and what you have given back to this world.
- The Nothingness Of NothingThe nothingness of nothing We come into this world with nothing Our purpose, to make something out of nothing The end, we leave with nothing.
She can’t tell you how much pain she bears because she is chained to them.
She lifts up her hands but she is realising that no one is coming to her rescue.
The truth is hidden and nobody cares for the common child.
The chains are tightening on the innocent tiring hearts.
She carries her treasure in her hand but the chains are locked, keeping them apart.
She cries like a new born lad and holds up her heron bone wrist.
Who will come to her rescue? Oh poor generation! No one? Because we are cruel and doomed!!!
Danger or death? Darkness or light?
Don’t shiver in the face of my darkness.
Let it wrap you inside it’s dangerous cloak.
There is nothing to see or hear in its chamber.
No one to hurt you except the dangerous creatures that lurk in the dark.
Nothing to run from except death itself. It is a safe hell.
Will you fear the light? It reveals your true self.
The one you have rejected and despised.
But the darkness I offer deceives, it blinds and lures you to your most wanted desires.
Yet, it hides grave dangers in it’s deep.
Where there’s light, they will always be shadows.
But my darkness conceals the very shadows you run from.
But what it takes from you may over shadow your life.
When my darkness reaches for you, blinds your vision with it’s deceitful painted hands, it is too late to run.
Your fate is doomed. I ask again. Danger or death? Darkness or light?
1. It is slowly fading away. Knowledge?
Yes. Like smoke into thin air, everything we know is gradually becoming a myth.
It’s rare to find true wisdom and lasting knowledge.
Especially when you end up like the pages of a book.
Torn, forgotten and blown away by the careless wind.
2. Preserved knowledge will eventually be forgotten.
You should let go with no guidance and structure.
Do not keep it locked away in a cell while your potentials and worth is fading away.
Let your knowledge seek wisdom. Let it fly like a bird all across the globe.
For true knowledge is matched with equal wisdom.
