Stories of Transformation, and Metamorphosis on Covenant Grounds

I was praying and the Holy Spirit mentioned the University to me for the first time, I had not heard of the university before that time. God wants me to help 2 billion people across the globe to discover their God ordained purpose, maximize their potential and invariably become wealthy. Engineering is designed to shape one's mind for professing solutions to problem. It has and still is building in me, the possibility mentality of actualizing this calling. The core values imbibed by the university as well as courses like TMC and DLD have taught me some of the leadership characteristics that I am engaging in some leadership positions that I find myself within and outside of Covenant University. I caught the vision to start my podcast & organization called Trinity Podcast and Trinity respectively here in Covenant university. My course, course mates and lecturers have all been massive agents of motivation and development. The core values of sacrifice, capacity building and possibility mentality helped me in running my organization and self-development. Trust me, there is no better place! Covenant University is a destiny development workshop!
