One more push.

by Nov 10, 2020

I almost abandoned my study to acquire a master of laws degree in human rights from University of London after my husband died. I was tired and had so much to deal with coupled with the letter from the school asking me to withdraw because I didn’t write exams nor show up. That letter shattered me. I cried out loud and got really upset. I thought of calling their bluff but I remembered the fees I already paid, wiped my tears and encouraged myself in the Lord and contacted the school with documentary evidence to back up my reasons. 

Documents like obituary announcements, burial poster, marriage certificate to show proof of affiliation, hospital letters, funeral booklet and evidence of long stay overseas and medical reports to verify why I stayed. The school waived 500 pounds out of the outstanding fees and allowed me to continue. In 2015 I finished the study, I wrote my final exams in October of that year, almost 3 years behind schedule and on March 8, 2016 I was at the graduation ceremony. 

5 years after, the office of the Alumni, after my meeting in London in February 2020 just before the covid wahala got in touch with me and interviewed me. Over the weekend, the 2020 alumna magazine was released and I look back ad asked myself, what if I had given up? I got featured across 2 pages and the work my team and I had done on widows issues extensively covered. Again I ask, what if I had given up? I thought about giving up but did not. I made a choice not to! Did I have many reasons to give up? Sure! Those are stories for another day. If you’re thinking about giving up on that challenge, don’t! Give it just one more push!

    An interesting dialogue is worth comment. I believe that you must write extra on this topic, it might not be a taboo topic however usually people are not enough to talk on such topics. To the next. Cheers
