It Was Hard For Georgina Onuoha, But Against All The Odds She Got Her Masters Degree In Healthcare Sciences!

   

Not only did she finish her Masters programme successfully, she did so in flying colours. Nollywood actress, Georgina Onuoha just concluded her Masters degree in healthcare sciences and she detailed all she went through to finish the programme. She shared her story on her Instagram page to encourage anyone not to give up on their dreams.

She wrote,

When you hear that lonely voice telling you that you can’t play a drum, dig in and play that drum as if your life depends on it. This didn’t come easy for me. All odds were against me.

Health was weak, less than 4 hours of sleep each night for two years. Work as a health consultant was brutal because it required daily reading, data analysis and processing. In between I had to be a mom (yes single parent) and as well manage my businesses.

There were nights I considered quitting because the stress was enormous but my daughters kept telling me , “mummy you can do it.” There were days and nights I cried for comfort because my health was failing me.

Multiple trips to ER for blood transfusions, low hemoglobin of 2.1 due to severe hemorrhage caused by fibroids. I was in a fight for my life. I saw me disappearing. Many thought I was looking for shape or dieting. NO!! I was barely hanging onto life.

I became a shadow of myself. I weighed less than required for my height. I contemplated leaving school and career because of poor health but my kids kept me going.

Eventually, I had a major surgery (hysteroscopic myomectomy). I was mocked by friends and enemies for my weight loss. My grades suffered but I had the best lecturers who wondered why and kept pushing me to get back my good grades. With time, I became stronger.

Things started falling into place post surgery. I am thankful today for life and the grace given me. Not only did I graduate with Masters of Health Sciences, I came out with a flying GPA. Thank you lord for turning my pain to gain, tears into joy and despair into hope. I am eternally grateful to all who helped me through this journey and believed in me, my vision and aspirations. May heaven reward you all. When they say you can’t, Tell them “YES YOU CAN”
