Few days after earning her Ph.D., she took to her Facebook page to announce her achievement.

In her post, she recalled how she had to juggle studying outside the country for her master’s and continue with her Ph.D. right after and also managing the home and catering for her children as well.

“It has not been easy but God has been faithful. I am very grateful to my family and loved ones for encouraging me to go this far. We made history together!” she said.

“For me, the most important is to hold the door for many ladies to pass through!… Computer Science is largely a male-dominated field but we are changing the narrative! So don’t give up, push harder and you will see the light at the end of the tunnel,” she stated.
