An exceptional 23-year-old Lady named Montoya Timaya Major has achieved tremendous success in the United States after earning three degrees from Nova Southeastern University at a time she single-handedly nursed her newly-born twin. Montoya Timaya who narrated her struggles and success on Facebook said she had to go through a lot of challenges alone which included having a C-section to deliver her twins.
Despite all that, she was proud to have earned a second Bachelor’s degree in Cardiovascular Sonography and a Master’s in Health Science.
“Our program started off with 26 people and I am now 1 of 17 that will be graduating. 5 months after starting my graduate program I found out that I was pregnant,” Montoya narrated on Facebook.
She added that when she told her program director that she was pregnant with twins, he asked her to take time off and come back the following year because it was going to be too hard to finish the program with a baby and “nearly impossible” to do it with two babies.
“I went to class every single day literally until the day I gave birth. I was determined to finish.
Only after a week of giving birth via c-section I was back in class because i was told it was “unacceptable that I missed a week of school,” Montoya narrated.
Montoya stated that her grades dropped drastically as a result of being occupied with taking care of her children.
“My grades dropped DRASTICALLY and my anxiety went through the roof. I was so afraid of failing and losing everything and most importantly my kids.
I honestly thought dropping out would be the best choice for me, but I knew I couldn’t let my kids down,” she said.
