A young woman, Colette Offiong Bassey, has become the first person to ever graduate with a first class degree from Linguistics and Communications Studies department in University of Calabar (Unical), after sitting for her final exams while heavily pregnant.
Colette took to her Instagram page to share the testimony following her convocation ceremony, saying she gave birth three days after her exams.
She revealed that writing the exams just days before her due date was not an easy task, yet she not only succeeded, but also set a record.
In the department of Linguistics and Communications Studies’ 44 years history, no one has ever graduated with a first class degree in the department, until Colette.
Sharing the good news via her Instagram page, Colette wrote;
To God be the glory!
I remember finishing exams on a certain Wednesday and giving birth that Saturday. It was one hell of a ride but it ended in praise.
After God, my gratitude goes to my husband who Pushed me hard and gave me great support. I have a great support system, the rest of family included.
Thank You everyone. I’m super thankful for the show of love. It’s never too late to achieve excellence, you just have to start. Take the step, whatever it is. The journey to greatness goes on.
My name is Colette Offiong Bassey, First Class honors degree holder
Linguistics and Communication Studies. To God be the glory!
