 Queen Abimbola Soares graduated with the class of 2001. We took classes together especially Geography with Aisuedon even though we were in separate classes. She is known to me as a corridor girl. She stayed at home for about two years after graduation and attended Foundation in Engineering in University of Leeds from 2003-2004. I always give Big thumbs up to females who study Engineering. I give her more than two. She studied Electronics Systems Engineering at the University of Manchester and is currently at University of Bradford doing an MBA in Accounting and Finance.She is currently in a relationship, so we hope to expect wedding bells soon. She is one of the achievers that QC produced and I wish her a successful future.

The day Kemi Fosudo and I went to buy Indomie in JSS3 and we put it in a Typewriter box so that no one would see it. We drank 7up in there and on the way Kemi belched and Tunde Opesan shouted at her and she said "Sorry Sir:"Lol. Then we went to eat it in the gym(it was dark because there was no light)

Thank you Bimbo.


  1. Wow, this brought back memories for me! I remember the days of Marinho, out of bounds, tuckshop, prep, compound tidiness vs. dormwork. I loved my time at QC. A very memorable experience for me must be wearing my skirt and blouse for the first time and moving to Senior block. My first thoughts 'I don arrive' lol! Always happy to see QCOG. I don't know what is happening to our beloved school but I do hope that we can make it different. An even better QC than we attended.
