Dosunmu-Ogunbi said her motivation and what her pushed her forward to complete her program was the desire to impact the world.

She said she had previously attempted a PhD in 2020, the COVID-19 year, but the journey hit a snag and her ambition stalled for a while.

Relentless and determined to see through her dream of becoming a STEM professional, she undertook the challenge again, and this time she is successful.

She noted that she was inspired to pursue a PhD due to an encounter she had during her childhood with someone who donned a Cute PhD gown

She inquired about what she had to do to wear one in the future, and she was told she needed to earn a PhD in either medicine, law, or engineering.

She shared that she decided against medicine because she detests the sight of blood and could not go for Law as she dislikes the experience of speaking to a large crowd.

This leaves engineering alone out of the options.
