Bolu, a fourteen-year-old science student at the City of Knowledge Academy showcased his prowess in the Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 category.

Bolu’s success not only reflects his individual dedication but also the unwavering support provided by the City of Knowledge Academy and its partners. “My school, the City of Knowledge Academy, provides tutoring for us (students) every session towards the competition,” Bolu shared.
“Last year, I participated in the Microsoft Office Specialist examination where I came third. This year, my ICT teacher encouraged us to work harder. And with a lot of practice, I was able to get first position in the Microsoft PowerPoint 2016 category at the Nationals, which led to being selected to represent Nigeria at the world championship in Orlando, Florida, United States.”
