She explained that she will have to let one go as she cannot accept both scholarships for her Master’s degree abroad. “Now I have to choose 1. Both are fully funded with diverse opportunities and it pains me that I have to let one of them go,” she said.

She encouraged university graduates with a second-class lower degree not to be discouraged by their results but should stand firm to prove their intelligence to the world. “o, if you have a 2:2 like me, the journey might be slightly tougher but the world is your oyster! Apply!,” she said.
