“I am very lucky to be part of the tradition of a well-respected and reputable university.”

2022 MSC Environmental Management graduate Richard Okafor shares his insight into life at GCU and life after graduating from university.

I chose to study at GCU because…

GCU is a diverse and prestigious institution with core values around academic excellence and humanity. I am very lucky to be part of the tradition of a well-respected and reputable university.

The most important aspect of my university experience has been…

Meeting people from diverse backgrounds and experiences, learning hands on and applying the knowledge and skills moving forward. It also improved my communication skills and interactions with different people.

My biggest lesson learned so far is…

Hard work and success go hand in hand. The harder and smarter you work; the more likely things are going to fall in place.

I’m proud to be part of the University for the Common Good because…

Being part of an institution for the common good is the right place to be. We all need love, empathy and support to grow.

I get my inspiration from…

God, my family and my environment. I am inspired too by my program leader Prof. Jim Baird. I have learned a lot from him personally and I am grateful for his impact in my life and career.

My next steps look like…

Furthering my professional career in my field and going from there. I am passionate about the environment and want to contribute my little quota to sustainability and the attainment of our net zero goals by 2050. I am grateful to GCU for the platform to go on and express myself even more.
