A Nigerian Tedx speaker, Emmanuel Faith, has taken to Twitter to share his experience with his project supervisor who ‘’wrote him off'' because he was graduating with a second class lower degree.
In a tweet shared on his handle, Emmanuel said five years ago while he was working on his final year project, his supervisor had told him that people with first-class grades as well as those with second-class upper were struggling to get jobs and then implied that it will be difficult for anyone with a second-class lower to get one.
He added that the Supervisor went on to ask him to be serious with his life.
Five years after the unflattering comment, he said grace has carried him. Emmanuel who is a Human Resource guru and a four-time TEDX speaker, wrote;
“People with first class and 2-1 are struggling to get a job, not to talk of you who finished with 2:2, ko si ise nta o, it’s better be serious with your life”
That’s what my project supervisor told me five years ago.
It’s five years after, and God’s Grace has carried me ‘’
