“I missed first class by 0.26 per cent, and I remember very well that when the gradualist list was released I lost appetite. I didn't want to attend the graduation ceremony.

The man added the death of his close friend who had first class during their time in school also made him reflect on his actions.

“Today I tell my friends that the purpose of my first degree has been served. It was to get me a job and also to help me get into graduate school. Now I work as an international teacher, also I have one master's degree, and I am studying for another. Today that first class that I was crying over is useless”
