23-year-old Sarah Mwangi who got pregnant and gave birth while studying has bagged a nursing degree from the University of Texas El Paso in the United States.
Sarah Mwangi is a Kenya woman who was awarded a scholarship to pursue her studies in the United States because of her outstanding athletic abilities. However, her life took an unexpected turn when she got married and became pregnant.
Despite the unplanned circumstances, Sarah did not allow it to affect her. She embraced the challenge with unwavering determination, managed her pregnancy till she gave birth while taking her Nursing classes.
“I can’t imagine and still don’t know how I made it through the last two semesters carrying the pregnancy, taking care of the baby, and continuing and passing your nursing classes. Knowing how nursing education is,” she said.
Though Sarah had to let go of her passion for running, she accepted her new reality and focused on her studies with the goal of graduating from Nursing school with a good grade.
Sarah said the journey became even more challenging when she gave birth to her baby girl as it was not easy combining school with taking care of her baby.
She claimed that her last two semesters were particularly difficult and left a lasting impression of hardship. But driven by her love for her daughter and the unwavering belief she had in her aspirations, she did not give up.
