Powerful reactions from social media users
Below were some breathtaking comments shared in the thread of the inspirational post.
School was never a scam; Anyone saying that being educated & getting a certificate is a waste of time is lying to his or herself cos education takes one places money can't. All one prays for, is to meet the right people at the right time & get the connection. May God help us all.

Perhaps the best thing about friendship is helping each other to achieve mutual goals.
In another story, two friends seem to have done that and their story has set social media abuzz. In a Twitter post, one of the friends with the handle @No4troublemaker shared a throwback photo of when they were students at the University of Benin (UNIBEN).
The second snap showed them in Munich, Germany several years later.
What is obvious in both photographs was how their skins went from being black to fair, making them look all fresh.
