Nigerian COSAM Student Plans to Bring Education Benefits Back Home

“In most of the classes that I’m in, we look at case studies or cross-examine people who have made wonderful and tremendous contributions to the world of science,” he said. “To be surrounded by those kind of people, or just to learn about them, I think it’s very humbling and inspiring. Now I have perspective on what I want to do and hopefully I can make a difference like they did and contribute to the world of science. It’s generally been an exciting experience to be a COSAM student.” Read more about Daniel Udochi and how he wants to give back to his home country.
