Single mom who gets pregnant in 200 level graduates with first class degree, inspires many (Photos)

An impressive Nigerian single mother, who conceived during her second year at the Federal University of Technology Akure (FUTA), Ondo state, has successfully graduated with an exceptional first-class degree.

Identified as justpopcorn on her X page, she courageously narrated her academic journey, emphasizing her achievements despite financial constraints and lack of parental assistance.

Pursuing a degree in Computer Science at FUTA, she self-funded her education through her entrepreneurial ventures, ‘Just Popcorn’ and ‘Just Cool Cream.’

Expressing her gratitude to God, she wrote, “I’m a single mom who got pregnant in my 200Level. Even though I had no financial support from family, I still graduated with a first class degree.”

“My journey wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. I am so proud of my achievements and I hope my story inspire others who face similar challenges. What ever you put your heart into, you will achieve 😊”

“Being in FUTA, and in Computer Science is already tough enough, regardless, I knew no one was coming to help me. All I had was God. He stood by me, and even though I’m tired many times, His strength upheld me, and here I am, TWICE AS TALL.”

“In the middle of this, I still started two
, first “Just Popcorn” and “Just cool cream,” and it’s been a great journey.”
