A Kenyan lady who met her demise 10 years ago has taken to social media to celebrate her educational achievements.
Patricia graduated as the best in Analytical Chemistry with first-class honors.
She used to walk upright until the accident that changed her forever. During the course of nursing injuries she sustained from the accident, she spent two years without involving in any academic undertakings.
She went into depression causing her heartbreaks and nightmares. She received rejections and stigma but still managed to pull through the drenches.
In her words
“It’s officially 10 yrs after my road accident. 10 yrs inclusive of the 2 years I missed school and still graduated as best in Analytical Chemistry w/ first class Honors, Inclusive of the many months I fell into depression and became a mental health advocate for young people, inclusive of the months of I received rejection and stigma but still managed to change people’s perception of person’s with disabilities. I never thought I would even come to see this anniversary. I don’t know about tomorrow, but I know it keeps getting better!”
