What makes her the challenge winner is the fact that she had received seven distinctions on her matric certificate - that means a distinction for each and every subject. Halala. She does not end her impressive streak there however as she goes on to share a picture of her degree, which is in actuarial science - talk about flexing.

Twitter users who were left motivated, inspired and impressed took to the comments section to congratulate the brilliant young lady on her success. Many of them could not believe that she had achieved 100 percent in math.
