On the 26th of September, 2013, I started my undergraduate journey at the University of Buckingham. I was just so excited to be at uni seeing that I did not perform my greatest in my A’level exams.
I wanted to enjoy all that uni life had to offer. I was ready to learn how to be a journalist and I was also ready to have a swell time at uni.
In my last post, I mentioned that the last two years were really difficult for me and I was depressed. This is because, though uni life was great, I experienced deep terrible pain and I also had to make some really tough decisions. All of this distracted me and when my course was about to end, I became really scared that I would not do well.
My results came out this morning and prior to this, I had been feeling so afraid and so scared. I could not even sleep properly last night because I was so nervous. So, by 9.08am this morning, I received an email from my university and the first thing my eyes went to was:
I am pleased to be able to confirm that you have satisfied the examiners and that Senate has accepted the recommendation of the Board of Examiners that you be awarded the following:
BA Journalism with English Literature – Second Class Honours, Upper Division
To say I was overjoyed is an understatement. I let out a shout of joy. I started to thank God and I have been thanking Him ever since because what he has done for me is something that I still can’t explain.
I do not know what I have done for God to love me so…I just cannot even begin to say how grateful I am to Him because I did not do this on my own.
This is me, sharing a testimony of what God has done for me. I cannot keep quiet about it and to him belongs all the glory, all the honour and all the majesty.
Please, anyone who reads this, just say ‘Thank you’ to God for me because saying it from my own lips isn’t enough. I would never ever be able to repay God for everything he has done for me but the best I can do is just to keep on thanking him.
