Nigerian Lady who left home at 17 becomes medical doctor with 2 degrees at age 24

A Nigerian lady, Chioma Ikwuegbu, has amazed netizens with her bravery and how she overcame the odds to get to where she is now.

Chioma who left home at the young age of 17 has achieved huge success and is now a medical doctor. She also studied at the University of the Philippines.

In a tweet on Tuesday, October 6, the Nigerian said prior to leaving the house, she was naive and had always been under her parents’ shield all her life.

Out to face life, she confronted unimaginable challenges that dampened her many times. According to her, she trudged on despite all till she reached her goal.

At the age of 24, Chioma Ikwuegbu does not only have two university degrees but is a medical doctor too, making her the first in her family with that feat.

Chioma’s post has since gone viral with over 19,000 likes. She details;

“I left home at 17 and my journey began. Naive and sheltered for most of my life, I faced unbelievable challenges and many times I broke down. But I persevered. And today, at 24, I have TWO degrees. I’m a DOCTOR OF MEDICINE. The very first in my family 😭 I’m a starrrrrrrrrrr 💫”

Many who commented on her tweet were full of praises and sent congratulation messages for her. Some were in utmost shock over how she mastered the courage to leave home and chase her dreams regardless of the opinion of others or provided that she was not of legal age yet.

And not forgetting that she has now set the bar high for them to do the same and that you can achieve everything out of life only if you set your mind to it and never give up.
