Ibukunoluwa, I remember you arrived after a full 10 months, proving your eagerness to join us. Your maturity level has consistently outshone your peers, adeptly managing whatever comes your way. You’ve consistently excelled in your studies. Your insights are both discerning and kind, and when it’s time for honesty, you always provide it, even when I think I’ve got things right. ANIKE, I have a lot to share with you. It feels like just yesterday I welcomed you, and now you’re 18. Astonishing! It’s been a journey guided by the divine.
