A Nigerian lady identified as Clara Carolina has gushed over her achievement for bagging her bachelor’s degree after spending over 15 years as an undergraduate in the university.
Clara has every reason to be over the moon for her feat, after spending over a decade in school, having gained admission in 2006. From the onset, she wasn’t taking her lessons seriously premised by her youthful exuberance.
Her grades were abysmally poor and she lost sponsorship which made her drop out of school. Fortunately, she pondered over the direction of her life and straightened her path. Sharing a photo of herself in her graduation gown, she wrote;
”I started undergrad in 2006 and finished in 2021.
I finished tho.
Thank you all for all of your support and words of affirmation. I definitely took the long road to graduation, like so many of you, and I am truly better for it.
Life happens, years pass. Shoutout to us, the tenacious ones. Long story short…I was wild and distracted in my twenties. I flunked out a couple times and lost financial aid which made it difficult to get back to school. When I was able to get back into school, my gpa was a 1.5.
It took a lot of commitment but when I went back I stayed on the deans list.
I got my AA at a community college, transferred to a 4 year school, founded , started the Black Wellness Project, and joined Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.
Whatever your goal, don’t quit. Do your best and keep going. You got this. :-)”
