Nigerian sets new record at Johns Hopkins University

Every year, thousands of young Nigerians travel to the United States to study. While many do well, only a very select few graduate top of their entire university class. 22 year old Emmanuel Ohuabunwa is one of these select few. However , his story doesn’t stop there. Not only did he graduate top of his class at Johns Hopkins University, he made history by becoming the first black man to do so in the university’s history!

Johns Hopkins University is acclaimed worldwide as a leading university in the field of medicine. It pioneered the concept of modern research in the United States and has ranked among the world’s top such universities throughout its history.  The National Science Foundation has ranked the university #1 among U.S. academic institutions in total science, medical and engineering research and development and as at 2011, about 37 Nobel Prize winners have been affiliated with the University.
