A Nigerian lady who had a suicide attempt at her school in the UK has finally graduated against all odds.
The excited lady took to social media to share photos from her graduation ceremony while revealing that psychiatrists had told her parents she’d never recover from her long battle with a mental health condition called bipolar disorder.
Not only did the lady surpass their pessimistic prediction, but she finished with a good grade and a big job.
The Nigerian lady had announced graduating with a second-class upper degree on Twitter while sharing photos from her graduation ceremony.
The fresh graduate added that she had one time attempted suicide but was saved by a friend named Siamara Goddard, who reported it to the school authorities, and this helped her get the needed professional help.

“She doesn’t have Twitter but Siamara Goddard literally saved my life in boarding school.
“I had a su*cide attempt. She reported it to the school authorities and that was the year I finally got all the professional help I had needed for so long.
