A lady, Clara Carolina is in high spirits as she has finally bagged her bachelor’s degree after spending over 15 years as an undergraduate in the university.
Clara took to microblogging platform, Twitter to celebrate her graduate status in 2021, and narrated how she ended up spending over a decade in the university.
According to the young lady, she gained admission in 2006, but due to her wild and unfocused ways in her younger years, she left school.
Her grades were abysmally poor and and she lost sponsorship which made her drop out of school.
Clara went back and repurposed her life, took a new route and was able to graduate.
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. :-)”
