In similar news, YEN.com.gh recently reported on a brilliant SA lady who graduated after passing matric with 7 distinctions. A beautiful black South African woman, @vuyisipho, just took the "How it started vs how it ended" challenge to new heights.
This comes after her challenge included a picture of her matric certificate and a picture of her degree. What makes her the challenge winner is the fact that she had received seven distinctions on her matric certificate - that means a distinction for each and every subject.
Halala. She does not end her impressive streak there however as she goes on to share a picture of her degree, which is in actuarial science - talk about flexing. Twitter users who were left motivated, inspired and impressed took to the comments section to congratulate the brilliant young lady on her success.
