Of a truth, Chidinma is one of the giants that helped me through Scholarship hurdles. Her readiness to help is second to none. She offered top-notch insights on writing winning personal statements as well as step-wise procedures for complete scholarship application. She was very instrumental to me clinching the prestigious Mastercard Foundation Scholarship in Canada. I can vouch for her mentorship anywhere without any shred of doubts” – Adekunle



“As a first time applicant with limited experience in essay writing, my success in obtaining a Commonwealth Scholarship in the UK was mostly due to the positive criticism of my essays by Chidinma. She’s well articulated, patient and was there for me throughout the rigorous process. I have and will continue to recommend her to anyone seeking to get an international master’s scholarship” – Chinechem



“After my Bachelors degree in Nigeria, I was determined to improve my academic progression by pursuing a Master’s degree in a world class university. I applied for several Master’s scholarships in the UK in 2014/2015 but I couldn’t get a fully funded offer. I instantly knew that my approach and strategies weren’t right. I decided to connect with Chidinma for advice on how to secure a Master’s scholarship because she was on a Commonwealth Shared Scholarship at the University of Exeter. She taught me everything I needed to know and she gave me strategies to successfully apply for Master’s scholarships. Eventually in 2016, I was awarded various Commonwealth Shared Scholarships and I settled for a prestigious university in Scotland. The strategies I learnt from Chidinma have also been relevant for me in pursuing my future aspirations as I recently got a fully funded scholarship for my PhD. Chidinma’s advice and support has truly been life changing for me” – Samuel



“I vividly remember the first time I messaged Chidinma on LinkedIn. Then, I was preparing to apply for a few scholarships and was in dire need of guidance and assistance. We neither have met nor had any form of communication prior to that message; we were total strangers. That notwithstanding, she was so accommodating and benevolent. She helped proofread my essays, gave me her expert advice and guided me through every stage. At the end, I won a couple of fully funded scholarships in two different countries, Germany and the UK (PTDF and Commonwealth). I will always be grateful to her and she’ll forever remain a part of my success story” – Mac-Anthony



“I reached out to Chidinma via Facebook and she gave me her contact and was able to put me through. One particular one was Chevening scholarship, where she read my essays and made remarks where necessary. Not to mention showing me her Commonwealth essay templates. I was able to compare her essays and mine and she gave me insights on writing excellent essays to support my future applications. Of course, everything was not rosy. I was rejected in some places but thanks to God, through her advice, support and encouragement, I was able to win two scholarships (Mastercard and NDDC) ” – Nora



“If I can recall one person that played a huge role in the successful completion of my MSc study at the University of Exeter, United Kingdom, it’s definitely Chidinma Okoli. She was there “come rain come sunshine”. She reviewed over 80% of all my graded assignments and gave me classical insights on how to write compelling essays, reports, dissertation, systematic reviews, and project proposals. As a result, I was able to graduate with a DISTINCTION as well as publish my MSc thesis in a reputable peer-reviewed, international journal. She is a great mentor and I have no reservation recommending her to anybody interested in achieving academic excellence!!!” – Nonso (Commonwealth Scholar)


“I would like to express my deepest appreciation for your excellent mentoring during my Chevening Scholarship application. Chidinma turned every mistake of mine into a learning opportunity. Her manner of teaching is worth emulating. Her innovative ways of imparting knowledge and guidance has been influential, and I know it will shape my developing skills as I move on in my professional career. I recommend her to anyone in need of scholarship support in any capacity for a successful outcome”. – Rasaq
