He said:

“Every day wasn’t always academically rosy for me, especially at the beginning of my journey (why I was yet to get a good grip on the language) and sometime towards the end (when the work load seemed to double in weight). The pressure was real sometimes, but I never let my self dwell so much on these thoughts.”
