My friends laughed at me: POS attendant achieves dream of studying in the US

A Nigerian lady has shared her testimony of how she moved to the United States to continue her studies despite being a point-of-sale attendant.

In a trending video, the young lady shared how she moved to the country without doing JAMB even though she went through several humiliations from her friends.

According to her, when she graduated from secondary school she had always believed she was going o travel abroad to further her studies so she didn’t take the JAMB exam and only wrote WAEC.

Pending the time of finally getting her wish, she decided to become a POS attendant where her friends who had done their exams and gotten admission into different universities used to come and ridicule her.

However, a few months later, she got admission to a university in the US, got a visa and moved. The joyous young woman showed beautiful pictures of herself in the US, thanking God for her life.


My classmates in Nigeria were all securing admissions into different universities, but I hadn’t even written the JAMB yet. I was managing my parents’ POS business and constantly subjected to ridicule whenever my classmates came to the shop. It hurt me deeply, and I often cried and begged my mother to let me go to school in nigeria that i am tired of hoping I’ll school aboad. Her response was always reassuring, telling me to trust in God’s plan and be patient. Despite the uncertainties, I held onto my faith and decided not to write the JAMB exam. I believed that God would take perfect control of my situation. As luck would have it, I was offered admission to a university in the United States and was even granted a visa. It was a dream come true, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the way things turned out. 🥺✨❤️#fypシ #CapCut #virallll #usa🇺🇸
