A Nigerian lady identified as Clara Carolina has taken to social media to reveal that she spent 15 years in the University studying for a bachelor’s degree.
According to the lady, from the onset, she wasn’t taking her lessons seriously premised by her youthful exuberance so at a point she had to 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. :-)”
