Opeyemi (Ope) SOREMEKUN is a 27 yr old graduate of Ladoke Akintola University Ogbomoso (LAUTECH) where he completed his undergraduate studies bagging a First-Class degree in Chemical Engineering. Having scaled through what he considers the hurdle of pain, discomfort and stress of studying in Nigerian Universities and working in the country, he learnt about the Michael Taiwo scholarship from Facebook posts and saw it as an opportunity for a relief in the ongoing cost of applications into a PhD program in US universities. His dreams are to complete his PhD and work in an energy start-up or established company.
