Comfort Chukwuere explained that she started seeking scholarships in 2019 but got several disappointments after investing some money in seeking guidance which did not work out.

“My scholarship journey began in 2019, but I became more focused on it in 2020. I began looking for scholarship platforms in early 2020 and came across a popular paid scholarship masterclass on Facebook,” she said.

“I attended the so-called master class, but I was disappointed because I didn’t get what I was seeking for (practical knowledge, guidance and a community of like-minded people), because the owners of the group were more focused on making money than in our success,” she added.
