Ondo born medical doctor picks Harvard laurel

A 22-year-old Ondo born medical doctor, Boubini Miyensinte Jones-Wonni who graduated as best graduating student in all three levels of education has been admitted into Harvard University for residency training.

Boubini who hails from Arogbo in Ese-Odo local government of Ondo State, started her primary education in Banky’s Private school, Apo, Abuja and due to a sterling performance in primary school, she was encouraged to sit for the common entrance examinations from primary three which she passed in flying colours.

She proceeded to the Word of Faith Group of Schools in Area 1 Abuja . While in High school, she continued on the path of hard-work and diligence . As such, she was made the Library prefect and was awarded a full tuition fee waiver in her final year by the management of the school.

She subsequently graduated as best graduating student and valedictorian for the graduating class of 2014 at the age of 14 in the year 2014.

Upon performing excellently in a test conducted, she became a beneficiary of the Special Education Scholarship programme for Niger Delta Students and was sent to the USA to study Medicine and Surgery.

This required her to first complete a first degree in a relevant discipline prior to medical school. Thus, she was admitted in Miles College Alabama, U.S.A to obtain a degree in biological sciences. She was able to achieve this in a record of three years as opposed to the conventional four years of study.

At the completion of her studies in 2018, she was adjudged the best graduating student in the Department of Natural science and Mathematics with a grade point average of 4.0/4.0 and a Co- Valedictorian of the graduating students at the age of 18.

Boubini wrote the Medical College Admissions Test ( MCAT) , a pre-requisite test for admission into medical school and scored in the 91st percentile, this means that her score was in the top 9 percent of all the students who took the examination in the United states of America at the time, and consequently received an invitation to the Howard University Medical School ,in Washington DC to study Medicine in 2018 .

She eventually graduated on May 6, 2022.
