Instagram user, Kaffydadiva who is a Nurse/Healthcare Administrator shared her story on getting 3 US degrees
Reminiscing on bagging my 3 US college degrees with honors. Left is my 1st degree, Associate’s bagged in 2011 with honors. However, just recently participated in d grad ceremony….middle is my 2nd degree bachelor’s, bagged in 2016 with honors. The right one is my 3rd degree Master’s bagged in 2017 with distinction. I remember when i was still living in Nigeria, gained admission to Laspotech Isolo, to study Mass Communication, wanted to become a journalist. Didn’t finish there, then i did GCE, and gained admission to LASU, Surulere campus, to study same course. I was there for just 100 level, and got the opportunity to come to the United States, which i jumped on. Getting to the US, people told me that journalism doesn’t sell here, being that i am a Nigerian with accent, that medical field is lucrative. I listened, and started all over again, and this time, in a medical field. Went through lots of challenges, but ended up bagging my 1st degree in 2011 with honors. I was like wow Kaffy, u did it, u can continue. You have the opportunity🙂. Then enrolled for my 2nd degree, which was Bachelor’s, completed that as well in 2016, by graduating at the top of the class with summa cum laude. Then i told myself again, Kaffy, you did it, you can challenge yourself again by going for Master’s degree, which i did. I completed that in 2017 in exactly just one year, by graduating with distinction (All A’s). I was the only student who graduated with the GPA of 4.0 in my school that year. I was so proud of myself because as i was going to school for my 3 degrees, i was combining them with work as well. I went to school in the morning, work in the evening. I made all the sacrifices, and they all paid off. I remember one of my professors in naija, who told me i was dull because i didn’t pass a yoruba test then. He told me he didn’t see me going far. Now look at me now, i proved him wrong. I went from bagging zero degrees in naija, to bagging 3 US College Degrees with honors, and my name was in the Dean’s honor roll lists. Isn’t God faithful and awesome?
