    And people with less challenges in their life will be there making excuses for failure. She totally deserves her success and I wish her the best life and the future have to offer.

    Of course! I mean she studied at Loyola, not surprised. I’m so happy for her…God kept her alive for a reason. Love the fact she didn’t wallow in self pity but challenged herself to be better which she achieved. Massive congratulations to her & her family. RIP to those who lost their lives. There is still nothing in this world that will make me fly locally. Sadly…

    American universities give degrees based on grade points average and not class. There’s nothing like first class, second class etc.

    Quite bitter-sweet for me because I lost 2 cousins in this crash and we would have been celebrating their achievements now but God knows best. However I am really happy for this young lady and wish her all the best.

    She lives to inspire :-). Her story (in 2012) inspired us then. Her story still inspires us now.

    When I saw this I just started crying.I don’t know why this story touched me deeply. Inspite of everything she went through. I mean she had all the excuses not to be the best but she is. I think she looks beautiful and I am not trying to be nice. I pray that God heals all the scars. I know he can and he will. God bless you

    Congratulations. God is truly faithful. She is destined for greatness. Amen

    I’m not sure why folks are attacking the person that mentioned the 1st class issue. It is true, there’s no 1st class in yankee universities. It is a correction BN should be willing to make to represent her honors accurately.
