Updated on by Olusegun Fapohunda
Anita Osariemen Omonuwa from Edo-state, Nigeria, became the first black woman to graduate from the University of Reading UK with a first class degree.
If you call her a jinx breaker, you are not far from the truth. The reason is that many black female students had tried to graduate from the University of Reading UK with a first class degree for many years, but they failed for one reason or the other. Finally, Anita Osariemen Omonuwa achieved the feat that has never been attained in the 122 years of existence of the UK institution.
She was among the students who got the “Chancellors Award” by the Chancellor of the University, Sir John Madejski, who happens to be the founder of AutoTrader and Chairman of Reading Football Club.
She actually graduated from Reading in 2012 but just finished from the Nigerian Law School.
