A Nigerian lady, Elizabeth Ogwo, has overcome all odds to achieve her life’s dream. In a LinkedIn post, she said it took her 10 solid years before she was called to the Nigerian bar as a lawyer.
She also had to study at three different universities. Elizabeth said when she finished secondary school in 2010, she thought hard work and her intelligence would get her the goal of being a lawyer, thinking she would not need God.
Several challenges later, she was greatly humbled. The Nigerian lawyer said she faced odds she never anticipated. In 2014, she lost four years of her life as everything went south.
The Nigerian lady said that the very moment she realized she would need more than herself to get to where she wanted was when things started falling back into place.
Elizabeth came out of everything as a victor and had a first-class in law before she was called to bar. Many who congratulated her appreciated God’s grace in her life.
