A beautiful Nigerian comedienne, Ecovangel, has graduated as a nurse in the United States after nights of depression and alleged hopelessness.
According to the lady, who is one of the regular faces of comedy skits on Instagram, she failed two classes and had to stop comedy, work harder to ensure she graduates.
‘Yes I️ failed two classes! But I️ never gave up. I️ stopped comedy after I️ failed the first class, worked harder, focused more and still failed the second class, I had my graduation date pushed back by almost a year. I️ CRIED every night, went through period of depression and hopelessness thinking I️ have lost everything. Living in USA with just my YOUNGER siblings with no financial support from Parents or relatives, life was difficult for us, we could barely eat 3 times a day, had a lot of past due bills, spent paychecks before they arrived and some days studied in a empty stomach.
Seeing my Younger siblings 16yrs and 18yrs suffer, worked multiple jobs as a high schooler and college student to pay my school fees, rent and other bills was so DEPRESSING. I️ kept telling myself that the Lord that gave me ADMISSION will give me GRADUATION. The passion outweighed the obstacles, I️ kept pushing. It seemed Sooo IMPOSSIBLE, I️ never believed this day would come.
This degree wasn’t easy for me to acquire. God knows I️ will cherish my career and be the very BEST NURSE Ever, serve, Care, show love, so much compassion and inspire people. That Stethoscope on my neck and Smiles means the world to me right now.
