A Nigerian, Onyeka Chukwudozie, has been offered six doctorate scholarship offers from universities in Australia and California.
The Nigerian, who announced this via his LinkedIn account, said he had hawked mangoes and drinks in markets in the past.

Of the offers he got, the scholar chose to study Biological sciences (virology) at the University of California, San Diego.
He narrated, “Finally, the dream has been actualised. I am starting my PhD in Biological Sciences (virology) programme here at one of the most prestigious schools in the world UC San Diego (University of California, San Diego). I was once a boy who hawked mangoes and local drinks in markets and roadside to assist my family in putting food on the table.
