Bridget explained that her journey to becoming a master's holder wasn't in any way rosy.

Showcasing her second class honours result, Bridget said it is a testament to the fact that anything is possible once one sets his/her mind to it.
Reacting to her story, Arekam Sunday said:
"Bravo! Mrs Bridget. This is inspiration and a great motivation . Thank you ma for paying those prizes."
Ifeatu Ikedi commented:
"Like Napoleon Hill said in his book " Think and grow rich", A winner never quit, and a quitter never win. That's a simple logic, if you want to win you must not give up!!!
"Congratulations to you Bridget for being an encouragement to others, and more so for being a Super lioness. Graduating from the lion's den is not a child's play."
Dr Ignatius Ezeani wrote:
"Really proud of you Sis. Your drive is out of this world. Please keep it up and continue to inspire the young ones."
