Albino Lawyer Who Graduated With 1st Class Twice, Despite Visual Impairment, Bags Masters Scholarship

A young Nigerian lawyer identified as Sandra Ozioma Marume has taken to social media to celebrate her win after bagging the Mastercard Foundation scholarship to study for an MSc at the University of Edinburgh.

Sharing her win on LinkedIn, the young lady disclosed that she graduated with a first class LLB degree from Afe Babalola University despite the significant visual impairment associated with albinism.

She also graduated with a first class from the Nigerian Law School and worked at Banwo & Ighodalo, a top-tier globally recognised law firm.

Sandra expressed gratitude to God, her parents and everyone that was part of her journey. She also thanked her mentors and Mastercard Foundation for selecting her out of over 4,000 applicants.

The young lady said she has learnt in the past twenty-five years that whatever the mind conceives is achievable.

In her words: “And just recently, securing the prestigious Mastercard Foundation scholarship to study for an MSc at The University of Edinburgh. I am excited to be joining a strong network of change-makers across the globe as an MCF scholar.”
