Memory Verse: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; That he may set him with princes, even with the princes of his people. Psalm 113:7-8

Adeola is the first black to obtain a PhD in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Saskatchewan, Canada. Let us draw some life lessons from her.

1. She Refused To Be A Spoilt Brat: As the last born, she could have chosen to be a spoilt brat whom her parents pamper but instead, she decided to give life a good fight by revolting against her foundation of poverty.

2. She Hated Poverty with Perfect Hatred: She did not allow her background to put her on the ground. She rebelled against her background. Many are tired about their situation but are not ready to fight for a desired change. The secret of success is sweat.

3. She Was Determined And Highly Focused: Imagine the time she spent applying to over 100 schools for her PhD. She was dogged, resolute, persistent, stubborn and dogmatic in making a success out of her life and academics. What about you?

4. She Was Very Humble: A Master’s Degree student working as a cleaner? That’s humility! Humility releases grace (James 4:6). There’s no price too much to pay for good success. Many teenagers and youths of these days brood excessively over their predicament instead of breaking through it.

5. She Was Very Industrious: Beloved, it is very strenuous working and studying at the same time. I applaud Adeola as a very valiant woman of courage to successfully combine both.


  1. There is no good reason for failure in life.
  2. Fight for what is yours. You either fight or perish.
  3. You could be “loaded” but “grounded” if you allow your potentials lie unused.
  4. Never wait for a convenient time before you take action. Act in faith today.
  5. Never allow your background put you on the ground.
  6. Hold yourself accountable and not anyone else for what you eventually make out of life.

Prophetic Decree: I decree you are unstoppable in the name of Jesus.

Prayer Focus

  1. Altars of “thou shall not excel” speaking against my foundation, die, in Jesus name.
  2. Powers frustrating my progress die, in the name of Jesus.
  3. Holy Spirit, perform a surgical operation in my life today, in Jesus name.
  4. What stopped my Parents shall not stop me, in the name of Jesus.
  5. Powers that limited my Parents shall not limit me, in the name of Jesus.
