The girl from Okuapemman SHS, who made headlines in the previous National Science and Mathematics Quiz (NSMQ) for her blunt remarks referring to other schools as ‘pods’, is once again capturing public attention.
Her interview this year has sparked a number of amusing narratives and reactions.
In a stark difference from last year’s notable video, the student exhibited a composed and measured behaviour as she addressed the matter.
This time, she mentioned that her school is entering the competition with a new mindset that stresses respect towards all the participating counterparts.
“She stated, with a remorseful tone, “We will not overly respect any school, but we won’t belittle any school either. We are aware of their capabilities because we have seen them play.”
Social media users’ reactions to the Okuapemman girl’s video
This behavioural change has caught the attention of the internet community and NSMQ enthusiasts, who posted about her transformation on social media.
Many applauded her maturity and fair play spirit, and appreciated the shift towards a more thoughtful demeanor towards her competitors.
