A Nigerian lady, Oyindamola Ajayi, has celebrated bagging a doctorate degree at the young age of 28 after more than three years in school.
Now a doctor in corporate communications, the lady revealed that many years ago, she never thought a time like the one she is in would come.
Sharing her story on her LinkedIn page, Oyindamola said there was a time she lied to people that she was only vacationing in South Africa.
The 28-year-old old lady disclosed she had to say that so she would not have much to explain if she caved in and decided to quit the programme altogether.
A part of her post read:
“I remember lying to people that I was in South Africa for vacation anytime they asked why I was out of the country. Because the first year was so tough, I didn’t want to have to explain to many people just in case I gave into the pressure and decided to quit.”
The North West University graduate revealed that the journey was a time of self-discovery after battled bouts of low moments.
