“I may walk slowly, but never backward.”

“- Abraham Lincoln.”

Congratulatory messages flooded his comment section as people hailed his determination and strong will.

Kelvin Parks said:

“Hey, as long as you did it, that’s super Gr8! Not everyone has the same path to their goals and dreams but with a steadfast mind and heart, they Do It. The best to where it takes you from here.”

“Great job.”

Announcing the achievement on Twitter, Angel Earlene disclosed she had to combine her work with her studies whilst being pregnant at the same time.
