But his name remains on the honor roll as one of the three best students of the university. These are his words: “Some colleagues would look at me like I was an animal, no one would give me a word, the teachers seemed like they were not even there for me, nor did they always take my questions when I asked. But I devoted myself so much that afterwards, they began to look for me to give them explanations and to clear their questions.” ©African History By Admin|2021-04-11T14:29:52-04:00April 11th, 2021|Historicals|0 Comments Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!
