- There is a saying that "a woman is like a tea bag and you can't tell how strong she is until you put her in hot water".
- It simply means you don't know how strong a woman is until she has to face something difficult
A young woman has shown just how powerful this quote is and she has proved to the world that she is strong and super. The woman identified as Kanstance Frakes achieved her goals against all odds.
Frakes who shared her story on Twitter, recently graduated from the university after giving birth.
The lady revealed that she recently lost her sister and grieved for nine months. She works 30 hours and had 24 credits in school.
Despite all that, she was able to make her results in school and had her healthy baby six days to the day she graduated.
And like every strong woman, she showed up with her beautiful baby on her graduation day and they both slayed.
She wrote: "9 months of grieving the loss of my sister, 30 work hours, 21 school credits. Graduation Six days postpartum. Stick your chest out and handle it."
