- A woman identified as Charlotte Kabaseke is full of joy after completing and earning a PhD in law
- The Ugandan woman, who graduated from the University of Wuhan, said she wouldn't have considered going for her PhD if she was told how difficult it would be
- According to Kabaseke, the experience has made her stronger, more resilient and more analytical
A woman identified as Charlotte Kabaseke has taken to social media to celebrate her achievement after bagging a PhD in law from the University of Wuhan, China.
The Ugandan woman said she embarked on the journey on 4 September, 2017, adding that she was thankful because nobody told her that it was going to be a rough one.
In her words:
"In I am very thankful that I did not get someone to tell me the candid truth about what my exact PhD experience would be, otherwise, I would have reconsidered my decision. For example, I did not expect to feel so stupid very many times and I never expected that I would cry like a little girl so many times.
"I am however stronger, more resilient, more mature, more analytical, more courageous, more confident, more organized, more intellectually alert, I appreciate my work and resting hours the more, I appreciate my relationships better."
She said she has learnt that failure, especially in the area of PhD, does not indicate intellectual ability but, rather, resilience.
Social media users took to the comment section of her post to congratulate her.
