  • My mum was born in 1963. She wanted to study, unfortunately her parents could not fund her education. She worked for a while with her dad as a secretary. When she married my dad they saved money together and he funded my mum's education in accounting. Later on when i was born... she left to bring me and my 2 siblings up. I loved how both my parents supported each other through life and built memories together

  • Yes, she did. She was born 56, and I believe she went, right out of college, so she would have been degreed in 74, assuming she got through in the first 4 years

  • My mother was born in 1972, in a small Nigerian village. Her mother has only ptimary school education and encouraged her to study. My mother has 2 first degrees, a master and is currently doing her PhD. She gained a first class in nursing whilst taking care of 2 young children and a new born baby. She got her masters while taking care of 4 children single handedly whilst missing her husband working abroad! I know only a few women has hardworking as my mama :) she's my inspiration!

  • My mom was born in 1960, and she did not go to college. She had too many other things to focus on at the time, and going to college at the time wasn't really necessary. She's done well enough for herself without going for a degree.

  • She went to university and now she's a family doctor. Born in 1961 if that's interesting. My grandmother also went to law school, but couldn't persue a carreer since she got 5 children.
