INTERVIEW WITH LANRE SHONUBI
By Isaac Tobechukwu
Speaking from your experience being a former student, now a graduate and working. What do you think is most important for a student may be in his final year to know that will help him/her?
You should understand yourself, I’m saying this because I did not understand myself up until I left Covenant University. You need to make a conscious effort to understand yourself and know how you can balance between pursuing your career and doing school which is a primary focus and is the only reason why you are there, to actually pass your subjects and graduate. Look for a way to strike a balance.
Personally, I has issues with school and then in my final year when it was time for me to graduate, I still did not graduate. I was still there in school, I had to do one more year and this was because I did not know how to strike a balance between staying in school and pursuing my career then I understood later on that I am not the type of person that can multi-task. So, emphasis on understanding yourself, understanding your personality and knowing what works for you.
Lanre is an ex-student of Covenant University. He started his university education by building technology after he went to study Psychology and is now a broadcaster.
I believe that consistency is the foundation for perfection. Do you want to attain perfection? You have to be consistent with what you have chosen to do. Keep doing it regardless of circumstances that arise.
I cannot overemphasize consistency. It is just what it is, you just have to be consistent. Whatever you are doing, keep doing it. As you keep doing what you are doing, you would become good at it.
I must have discovered something that is key to pursuing a particular career path, it is called CONSISTENCY. I believe that consistency is the foundation for perfection. Do you want to attain perfection? You have to be consistent.
