More: Victory Yinka-Banjo, has broken grounds as she bags 19 international scholarship offers from top schools including notable institutions in the US and Canada. The 17-year-old secondary school graduate has been offered a scholarship worth over $5 million dollars for her university education. In her interview with CNN, Yinka-Banjo revealed her feeling as “pretty unbelievable”, adding that though she made her applications to many schools, she didn’t think that any of the schools will offer her scholarships. Making a comment on the selection process of the schools, Yinka-Banjo said that the schools “only accept the best of the best. “So, you can imagine how, on a daily basis, I have to remind myself that I actually got into these schools. It is surreal!,” she added. Young Miss Yinka-Banjo received full scholarships from Ivy League schools, Yale College, Princeton University, Harvard College, and Brown University. Other scholarship offers from the US include notable schools like Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Virginia.
