Orinami shared the journey that led her to the field of education, revealing, “When it came time to apply for university, my mom encouraged me to apply for medicine. However, due to my JAMB score, I was unable to secure a spot in that field. Subsequently, I decided to switch my course of study. While considering Biology, I found that the University of Jos only offered Biology in education. Despite facing opposition from those around me, I ultimately applied for Pharmacy.” 

Upon receiving her admission email, Orinami discovered that her course had been changed to Physics and Education. Despite facing skepticism from others about her choice of pursuing education, she remained resolute in her decision, emphasizing her fascination with the education aspect of the program.
