The Planned Happenstance Project: Olamide Ilori.
I realized that the university curriculum is very different from that of high school and to succeed I must change a few of the habits I had coming in. I came back in second semester being my own competition and motivated more than ever to get myself back up from the slump I was in. I felt like the testing methods were a barrier and that multiple choice was not for me. I had to find new ways to understand the information.
