”Took my laptop; browsed through UTEP’s MSc college requirements & of course I needed an online course due to the nature of my job, I called one of my mentors @omoba_abiola1 , & proceeded to see him…sent the email to the liberal arts faculty advisor, submitted the required documents & got enrolled in less than two weeks. All thanks to the WAY MAKER,” she added.
Tobi stated that it was not an easy journey being that she had to juggle school together with her athletic competitions especially the Championship competition she broke a record but at the end she graduated with a remarkable 4.00 GPA despite failing during that period.
”4.0’s we’re perfect to discuss yet there was a remarkable F+ in summer 2022 of which my main relief was my WR 12:12s I just couldn’t keep up; I was depleted and burnt out. All I did was rest, eat, and rehash whilst competing in Europe, WC & the CWGames,” she said.
She expressed her gratitude to everyone who supported and encouraged her through the journey to earning the degree.
”To everyone who helped with my classes when my brain freezes up; I earnestly value your benevolence! To the ones whom I inconvenienced so I get my work done in their space ,thanks to y’all,” Tobi said.
”Couldn’t function in my room, i knocked out at every sight of my laptop just because writing is not my forte lol In short, Thanks to every single soul who encouraged me ‘coz omo mehnn e no soft at all,” she added.
