Speaking with Pharmanews, the young pharmacist recalled how shocked she was when her name was announced as the winner.

“I never expected it at all. Nobody even gave me a hint that, besides being one of the 17 distinction grads, I would be given another award. I give God all the glory!” she exclaimed.

On her potential career, Ambeke disclosed that she is yet to figure that out.

“I know it sounds odd, but I am considering veering into Agriculture. Looking at the poor state of Nigeria, there is too much of hunger and food challenge plaguing it. I want to be one of the great minds to move it forward.

“I am still trying to figure out how to relate it with the pharmacy course I studied. Perhaps after my internship and masters, I would have figured it out by then,” she mooted.
