“Her first son is a 200level medical student sponsored by her farming . She hopes to study auxillary nursing which has been her life long dream and so after making up her mind, she quit farming this year and sent her kids to family members so that she could study and enrolled in waec. She was willing to starve if it meant studying instead of farming so that she could meet up the curriculum given to her.”

“Initially she was worried about writing waec with her daughter’s age mates and also had fears of passing the waec but not being able to finally afford to study the nursing of her dreams seeing how she practically had to save for a year just to register and write her exams without bothering about her son’s School fees. Knowing how excited she was , I told her to start afraid, as long as she was determined someday she would be a nurse if she doesn’t give up, even if it means studying at 60 when her children must have finished schooling and we might all be financially strong enough to sponsor her.”

I know you would have made an amazing nurse if not for the fault in your stars . I just want to encourage her for pursuing her education at last despite age and financial barriers. Please say a word of encouragement for her .”
