Media personality, Seun Olagunju celebrates as her 18-year-old daughter bags first class in Computer Science and Robotics from UK University

Media personality, Seun Olagunju, is a proud mum at the moment as her 18-year-old daughter bagged a first class degree from the University of Bedfordshire, United Kingdom yesterday Friday, July 26th.

An elated Seun shared photos from the graduation ceremony and also wrote about her daughter’s journey to becoming a young graduate. Read below

Those close to me know I hardly ‘expose’ my children on social media despite many feats but this I cannot help as my darling daughter graduates from the University! Our own Oyindamola graduated from the University of Bedfordshire, Luton, United Kingdom with FIRST CLASS in two (what I would term difficult )courses combined- Computer Science and Robotics at 18(and a half, she likes to round it up to 19)! And she is the only graduate of Computer Science and Robotics in the entire school for her set!

Oyindamola was offered admission into 9 universities in the UK and the US and many others here at home at the age of 15. She wanted the US but I preferred the UK because of proximity and time difference issues. She wanted to study Robotics, but as an African mother, I wanted a course that I don’t have to be ‘explaining’(don’t blame me abeg),even though her daddy said to let her be. So we reached a compromise and she said she’d do both! Then the search for a university that would allow her combine both at the same time and we found the University of Bedfordshire. I remember my train ride back to London from Luton when she resumed- I cried all the way, just wondering how my baby would cope without family at such ‘tender’ age. And what about all the fear mongering- with tales of drugs, depression, truancy and even failure, I wondered how she’d cope with the courses! With no Foundation too! 

So with my faithful agbanilagbatan God watching over her, and us just dashing in to check on her when we could, my Oyindamola not only held her own, she did it in flying colours! God indeed does not share His glory! My own child was programming and building robots for assignments and projects and it felt surreal seeing her explain to me how they work!(Don’t ask me if I understood). Please permit me the liberty to bask in my pride today, my heart swells with so much of it. 

All the “Mummy is too strict; mummy will say No, let’s ask daddy” have paid off. 
Today I, Oluseun am a proud mother! This indeed is the Lord’s doing!

Microsoft accelerates goals for reducing carbon footprint

Microsoft says it’s ramping up its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint in response to increasingly dramatic changes to the world’s environment.

The software giant on Monday unveiled a corporate plan to increase its pace of meeting sustainability goals, including expediting the move of its data centers to 100% renewable energy. The company expects to hit its 60% goal by the end of the year and achieve 75% for 2023, surpassing its previous 70% goal.

“The magnitude and speed of the world’s environmental changes have made it increasingly clear that we must do more, and today Microsoft is taking steps to do just that,” Microsoft President and chief counsel Brad Smith said in a statement. “We’re taking action to put our own house in order, while increasingly addressing sustainability challenges around the globe by engaging our strongest assets as a company — our employees and our technologies.”

Central to Microsoft’s efforts to reach its goal is an increase in the company’s internal carbon fee to $15 per metric ton on all carbon emissions, nearly double the $8 to $10 its business units previously paid. The company put the internal carbon fee in place in 2012 to hold its business divisions financially responsible for reducing carbon emissions.

Other components to its goals of reducing its carbon footprint include powering its Puget Sound, Washington, campus on renewable energy and accelerating research on its AI for Earth program to help people adapt and thrive in a changing environment.  

Microsoft isn’t the only Silicon Valley company confronting climate change. Apple has pledge to use 100 percent recycled materials for its products, Google aims to use millions of solar panels to power data centers, and earlier this month, thousands of Amazon employees signed an open letter asking the e-commerce giant to take more aggressive actions on climate change.

“Time is too short, resources too thin and the impact too large to wait for all the answers to act,” Smith wrote. “There’s an incredible opportunity to be realized by acting, supported by data and technology, on climate change.”
