A young South African lady identified as Akekho Omnye has taken to social media to celebrate her latest feat at the same time out pour uncensored vergence over what she has gone through during her slow start in her educational journey.
Akekho failed grade 5 and grade 11 respectively turning her into a laughing stock. She was called many names even her family members are not an exception. They was a subject to comparism with her brilliant cousins, she was called stupid, and slow girl who was doubtful of academic success.
After so many backlashes, Akekho stood her ground to pursue her dreams and shame her forces who were hellbent to bring her down. Today she is a graduate of the North West University with a sound degree.
In her Facebook post:
“I failed grade 5
I failed grade 11
I finished high school at age 20
They called me stupid and slow
I was never the genius, straight A’s
They said I don’t qualify for university, college is where I should go.
They compared me to my cousins.
Look at me now!! The stupid, slow little girl who didn’t qualify for university. The stupid, slow girl who can only go to a college.. the girl who’s cousins are better than her because they finished school before her.
This is me… GRADUATED FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF NORTH WEST..
God showed them, He showed them that only He knows, only He decides.. Thank You Lord..”
