"I was the first University graduate in my Family"- Samira Bawumia 1

”I am the first graduate in my family, both mother and father side but I had a dogged determination because the only way for me was forward because when I was going to school I had very supportive parents, not typical ones who will force you to marry early. I had the type of parents who helped me with my schooling.

“By the grace of God I was able to go to school and today, it has been a blessing to my family. Now people in my family are pretty well educated now but at those times, I was breaking barriers because of the opportunity I had”.
