Carryover effect; a young lady has taken to social media to celebrate as she has finally bagged her bachelor’s degree after spending over 15 years in the university.
According to the lady identified as Clara Carolina, she gained admission into the university in 2006 and recently graduated in 2021, after fifteen years.
Explaining why it took her so long to bag a bachelor’s degree, she opened up that she was wild and distracted in her younger years, her grades became very poor which made her lose sponsorship.
She eventually dropped out of school since she has lost financial aid. With new commitment and zeal to succeed, she went back to school and repurposed her life, and was finally able to graduate after fifteen years.
Narrating on the carryover effect in her story, she wrote,
“I started undergrad in 2006 and finished in 2021.
I finished tho.
Thank you all for all of your support and words of affirmation. I definitely took the long road to graduation, like so many of you, and I am truly better for it.
Life happens, years pass. Shoutout to us, the tenacious ones. Long story short…I was wild and distracted in my twenties. I flunked out a couple times and lost financial aid which made it difficult to get back to school. When I was able to get back into school, my gpa was a 1.5.
It took a lot of commitment but when I went back I stayed on the deans list.
I got my AA at a community college, transferred to a 4 year school, founded , started the Black Wellness Project, and joined Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated.
Whatever your goal, don’t quit. Do your best and keep going. You got this”.
