"5 months after graduation, I had applied for over 150 graduate schemes and entry level roles, and had no luck. It got to the point where I was distressed and needed hope. So, I sat myself down, prayed and had an honest conversation with God. I understood that I had to return back to University to show myself that I was capable of academic excellence"
After months of applying to schools, Michael finally got his 'yes' and stuck to the promise he made to himself to put 100% into his studies.
"Guess what……..I GOT ACCEPTED! I genuinely didn’t understand how, but I knew it was God! So, I created a plan, I was committed and I promised myself that I would work harder than I’ve ever worked in my life. I attended EVERY lecture and seminar and built a good relationship with ALL of my lectures. There were many challenges but they all taught me how to build resilience!"
Thankfully Michael successfully graduated from his master's degree in International Business Management with a distinction.
"I can’t honestly can not believe I’m saying this but today…. I graduated with a Distinction in MSc International Business Management!"
