‘If your dreams are big enough, there’s no stopping you’ is a valid assertion for this determined Nigerian mum, Mrs Obi. who didn’t stop as an SSCE holder.
To celebrate her mom, Nigerian entertainer, Wolfie shared the inspirational story as well as sent out some words of hope and motivation to women who think it is too late for them to make it or to achieve their dreams.
In a series of tweets he sent out, Wolfie revealed that his mom had gotten married to his dad at 22, as an SSCE holder.
Fortunately for her, at age 30, she was done giving birth and at age 32, she took a diploma programme in LASU. By 35, she was done and started LLB law part-time and now at age 44, she is a barrister.
Below is the twitter thread:
”My mum married at 22 with SSCE and a clerk job at a bank. By 30 she was done giving birth and by 32 started diploma in LASU. By 35 she was done and started LLB law part-time.
By 44 she was BARR Mrs Obi Your dreams are valid at any age and I hope you have all the support you need.
There were days mum drove to work on the island then to LASU for classes after work. She’ll get stuck in traffic and dad would take a bike to wherever she was and take over the driving.
When she was done, the jokes at her and my dad stop. Their dream were no longer funny, that man blew her trumpet so loudly. 4 middle aged women in my compound went back to school by the next year, 2 of them had previously laughed at them. ”
