Miss Rebecca in her acceptance speech promised to continue to make her father land proud in all she does.

Rt. Hon. Iyoha in his reaction to the honour done to his daughter, said: “I give glory to God Almighty for counting us worthy to have a daughter who has not only made us proud but has also brought honour to our beloved country. This honour is not only to me and my immediate family but also to Esan land, to Edo State and to Nigeria, because this honour done to her will further pave way for other Nigerian immigrants that may wish to go abroad for further studies.”
