"Happy to be missing a day of school"
NSF(UK) delegation at the Commonwealth Service 2017 -Westminster Abbey.
"On the day, I was not sure what I was expecting about the day or what was going to happen when my mum told me to come down to the service – I was just happy to be missing a day of school!
But in the end, I was pleasantly surprised with such a great day and experience.
Seeing the flags of all the countries Nigeria has such close connections with as well as the important people in attendance was truly a once in a lifetime moment. I could meet and see many people including a lot of the Royal Family, Kings and Princes of the commonwealth nations and some of the commonwealth sports stars including Jessica Ennis-Hill.
Overall the day will never be forgotten as it was so special and unique and I am glad to have been invited to be in attendance and happy to have many pictures to keep the memories of the special day and the special people I met."
