A determined mother, Claudette Alicia Keneisha, has made herself proud as she graduated with a Master's degree in childhood education from the New York Institute of Technology.
Sharing her academic achievement in a post on social media, she disclosed she had to defeat daunting odds to attain her postgraduate degree.
Claudette was pregnant while pursuing her Master's at the institute, disclosing that ''first-trimester sickness made me pause for a bit.''
Despite the brief obstruction, she overcame the challenges that came with combining her studies with pre- and post-natal pregnancy. As she graduated during a pandemic that has ravaged the world and disrupted education in many countries, she said:
''I walked across the stage today with the main priority in my hand.
"Dear Kyla, I dedicate this to you. It seems as though you wanted me to delay so that you could be a part of the celebration. The first-trimester sickness made me pause for a bit. But mommy kept the fire burning. Master's in childhood education/bilingual extension. Summa cum Laude!''
Earlier, Briefly News reported that a humble vendor, Joseph Addo, has given a jaw-dropping narration about how he met his biological father for the first time after several attempts.
Speaking in an interview with DJ Nyaami of SVTV Africa, Addo revealed that he had never met his dad and all attempts to meet him through his mother proved futile.
However, a family friend told him to travel to Yendi in the Northern Region, where his father worked.
''He was a bus driver who travelled to Yendi from the Volta Region. A family friend from my father's side told me to go to Yendi to wait for my father. The bus I boarded was my father’s bus," he disclosed.
However, Addo was not aware of this until he engaged a passenger to help him with directions.
''She asked where I was going. I told her who I was going to see and luckily my father overheard our conversation,'' he recalled.
is father began asking questions about his family and where he came from, he told DJ Nyaami.
''He asked for my mother and grandparents' names too. That was when he realised I was his son. He was very happy to see me.''
