A young lady brought to social media to commemorate as she has finally bagged her bachelor’s degree after spending over 15 years in the university.
The lady recognized as Clara Carolina said, she gained admission into the university in 2006 and just graduated in 2021, after fifteen years.
Saying why it took her so long to bag a bachelor’s degree, she explained that she was rough and unmindful in her younger years, her grades became very bad which made her lose sponsorship.
At some point, she dropped out of school since she has lost financial assistance. With current obligation and zeal to win, she went back to school and repurposed her life, and was eventually eligible to graduate after fifteen years.
Relating her story read what she wrote below,
“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”.
