Amina Yahaya has become the first female university student in northern Nigeria for more than three decades to lead a student union. Now, that is one strong woman not afraid to challenge the norm!

She was one of the vice-presidents of the union, until the President was removed.
In an interview with the BBC Hausa service , she says the only female professor in her department is her role model, she also complained about not gettinf enough support from other women.
