“ELOHIM is forever WORTHY of my PRAISE!🙇🏾♀️
Sat in my bed on a cold Tuesday night after an intense workout session on the 14th of Dec. 2021…Thoughts of the oncoming athletics year crept into my mind; long story short.
If 2022 …; it’s gonna be my quit year!
I cried; PRAYED & came to the conclusion that I might as well start my Master’s program.
Took my laptop; browsed through UTEP’s MSc college requirements & of course I needed an 💯 online course due to the nature of my job.
I called one of my mentors @omoba_abiola1 , & proceeded to see him…sent the email to the liberal arts faculty advisor, submitted the required documents & got enrolled in less than two weeks. All thanks to the WAY MAKER!
Much obliged to you Dr. Areli Chacón Silva and Mr Javier Aguilar, MPA for offering me an opportunity. Bro Abiola, my all round go to emergency contact 🤣 , @ihurdle_coach & Mrs Olimpo for helping me write a recommendation letter. I genuinely cherish ya’ll.
“4.0’s we’re perfect to discuss yet there was a remarkable F+ in summer 2022 of which my main relief was my WR 12:12s 😂😊😂 I just couldn’t keep up; I was depleted and burnt out. All I did was rest, eat, and rehash whilst competing in Europe, WC & the CWGames.
To everyone who helped with my classes when my brain freezes up; I earnestly value your benevolence! To the ones whom I inconvenienced so I get my work done in their space 😁 thanks to y’all (Couldn’t function in my room; knocked out at every sight of my laptop just because writing is not my forte lol In short, Thanks to every single soul who encouraged me ‘coz omo mehnn e no soft at all.”
