A young lady identified as Sharon Mbabazi has been celebrated on social media as she graduated from Mutesa 1 Royal University after sponsoring herself with the money she made from brick-making.
In a LinkedIn post by a man named Elphas Saizi, the Ugandan lady bagged a degree in communications and proved to the world that persistence is key.
According to Elphas, Sharon lost her mum at the tender age of five, and in pursuit of her dream, she started making bricks as a way of earning a living.
The young man's post read in part:
"She is a living proof that persistance (sic) and determination alone are omnipotent. Truly, there is absolute power in determination!!"
Elphas shared two photos of the young lady. One was a selfie Sharon took when working to eke out a living. The other photo shows her in a graduation gown after dropping the undergraduate pen. Her excitement in the second photo was indescribable.
