Blessing Chinweotito Ogboo is a first class graduate of Pure and Industrial Chemistry from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. As a student in the University, she served in several leadership positions in her then fellowship, Believer's Loveworld now Loveworld, UNN Chapter, having received several awards for her outstanding leadership and partnership in ensuring the actualization of the ministry's missions which amongst many included taking indigent children off the streets and back to school. After being inspired by the Education USA advisors, she published her first "first-authored" paper, and has gone on to publish papers in several journals and a conference. She accepted a fully funded teaching assistantship from the State of New York University at Buffalo worth over $40,000 per year for her PhD in Medicinal and Pharmaceutical Chemistry. Blessing says that being part of the Education USA Opportunity Funds Program (OFP) was the fuel behind her drive to succeed during her application process and she is grateful for their consistent guidance and assistance all the way.
