Esther’s Journey To Becoming A Graduate Was Longer Than Usual But Definitely Worth It

After failing to get admitted into a Nigerian tertiary institution, Esther had to go to South Africa, where she was told that she had to retake secondary school courses as her Nigerian School Leaving Certificate Examination was below their standard.

8 years later, she graduated with a First class degree in Human Resources Management.

A very big thank you to God for making this graduation day possible after 8 years of finishing high school in Nigeria!!!! Had a nice ssce results and passed jamb( my score was more than the minimum requirement of gaining admission)but won’t still gain admission. After spending several amount of money to process admission and all seems futile. I decided to be a tailor apprentice instead of sitting at home but still processing my admission.

When we keep spending money every year to gain admission, then I got admitted to Mapoly to study Mass communications (Part time) but that was not part of my plans. So my brother decided to send me to South Africa to study. Getting to South Africa and tendered my results, I was told my Nigeria certificate (ssce) was below standard and should repeat high school. That was the lowest point for me in my education advancement. I decided to start from grade 11 ( Ss2) and I was the oldest in class ? but to the glory of God I passed Matric nicely as well and I got accepted to study Human Resources Management.

Yesterday 14/12/2018, I bagged CumLaude (first class) in that field. I give all Glory to God and big thanks to my family and friends for the love and support. It’s been a long journey but am grateful I did not give up!!!
