My name is Makinwa
Toke and this is my success story
I haven't always made the right choices but I am thankful for grace. I'm no where near perfect, I struggle sometimes but I'm learning to lean on the grace of God to catch me when I fall. I wasn't the brightest student, I had potential but I was a troubled young girl, I didn't care much for my books till one day I was advised to withdraw, and I hit rock bottom.
I had no where else to go, my grades were bad, so bad the school asked me to leave. Something happened (grace), there was a meeting with all department heads I was granted mercy on humanitarian grounds.
My lecturers knew I had it in me but I couldn't see what they saw, they decided to give me an extra year to turn it around. It was humiliating, I started not quite at the bottom but it was a struggle. My mates had graduated and I was in a new class and boy it was hard but I did it.
I don't know how but I made a 2:2. Instead of 4 years I spent 5/6 but I made it out. Sometimes it takes sharing your story to inspire someone to believe in themselves and I'm always up for it.
