This is so awesome and well commendable of them.

How I Benefited from The Kponee-Shovein Foundation

Born and raised in the oil stain soil of the Ogoni Kingdom, the temporal crises that timely crashes, the hardship of sustainability and infrastructural breakdown, as an individual making a big difference has being the goal.

My childhood days was truly fun and it really shapened my mindset aside how regular kids how the world’s affair.

Fast track to my Tertiary University Admission, my 200 level was a blissful one as The Kponee-Shovein Foundation considered my scholarship application approved. The joy was overwhelming, I never wanted to let them them, and am keeping to that tracklist.

The Reformation

Knowing I was an Ambassador for the Kponee-Shovein Foundation, reading the stories and short Bio of Dr. Kalé Z. and Zachary J. Kponee-Shovein from the website and LinkedIn, I knew I had no set back.

Well, edified with courage, I was glad to represent the University of Port Harcourt in a Physiology National debate titled “The Viability of Physiology as a Career in Nigeria”, gladly I took the first position home.

The bounty positive impacts is much but I will take a brief halt here.

Endless Gratitude

I want to well commend the foundation for their care and support also caring about the needs of others with the foundation.
