A Nigerian man who worked as a tailor has proceeded with his ambition and graduated with a master’s degree from a UK university.
An inspirational post seen on Facebook shows a Nigerian man who worked as a tailor but is now a graduate of Nottingham Trent University, UK.
Gbenga’s brother Michael Adesanya shared the inspiring story:
“When my brother’s name was announced yesterday at his graduation, I could neither clap nor shout as others did. I was soaked in deep emotions and memories. Our road has been rough, Gbenga’s has been rougher. But he’s super focused and patient with his big dreams.
“From a master of local fashion hustle to Masters in International Fashion Management.”
“Gbenga, thank you for surviving as a stillborn, thank you for writing JAMB 4 times, thank you for being a dedicated local tailor for 7 years. Thank you for showing the world that roadblocks are stepping stones.”
