The governor said: “This gesture is to acknowledge merit and to especially encourage girl-child education in our state.”

He also said the state government was working to ensure that gifted children were given the opportunity to fully explore their potentials.

He said: “We are happy that this child has performed very well and I want to assure that we will continue to encourage our people to achieve in their chosen endeavours and bring honour to their families, the state and the nation at large”.

In an interview with Daily Trust, Fa’iza said she was glad with her performance and happy to make her parents proud.

“I feel happy and excited that I was able to achieve this and made my parents and family very proud of me. The feeling is overwhelming.”

She disclosed that she was expecting a minimum of B@ and the straight As was a surprise to her.

“I wanted a minimum of B2. That was my goal. It came as a surprise getting such a result but then I know I worked hard for it.”

“I didn’t start studying recently. I started since when I was in SS1. I read my books for around two hours every day. I don’t read at night because I find it difficult to retain what I have studied. When I was in SS3 my study patterned changed because I started reading a lot more. We also had extra classes and classes here in school.”

“My study pattern is to read whatever it is that I don’t know. I study more on topics that I don’t understand completely to shed better light on it.”

She said English was her weakest subject and had to study extra hard for it while mathematics was her easiest as she didn’t have to study hard to understand it.

“I don’t study at night at all. I don’t like reading at night because I believe the brain needs to sleep and if you read at night, whatever you might study, your brain probably won’t be able to remember it the next day.”

She said she was not a very smart child when she was young but became serious in JSS3.

“I was a playful kid, when I was in junior secondary school I wasn’t very serious until JSS 3 when I became serious then everything became normal. In SS1 I found it easier to read, I’m somebody that is very quiet. But I wasn’t actually smart when I was young.”

“My dream university is Harvard University but I have applied to a few universities. I also plan on applying for scholarships at some reputable universities abroad too. I applied to Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria as my choice for JAMB.”

She advised other students to study and understand themselves instead of trying to be like others.

“Just be yourself, because sometimes when you join the crowd you become lost, everyone is different, don’t compare, when you discover yourself everything will be easy. Be attentive to details, be confident and believe you can do better.”
