- Tuwanie Morgan hits success as she graduates with a first-class degree major in computer science
- Tuwanie narrates her journey saying she moved from a back-bencher to leading the crowd
- Now, the young graduate is prepared to play positive roles to improve the society
A lady identified as Twanie Morgan has expressed excitement after graduating with a First Class major in computer science.
Morgan bagged a first-class honour degree in computer science from the University of Technology, Jamaica and could not hide her joy for attaining such a feat despite the social difficulty she had years back.
Growing up, she said she had always struggled with her self-esteem and this affected her through school as her 'social difficulty' relegated her to being a back-bencher, who didn't want to be seen or noticed.

She explained that she was a student who would rather respond with a 'no question' or keep mute to the lecturer's "does anyone have any question, contribution or anything to add?"
Her situation was critical to the point that she waved aside every opportunity to participate in classroom discussions and dreaded taking on leadership roles in school - she would do anything just so she won't be noticed.
And like the midday sun she made a huge transition, she moved from being a back-bencher to a leader. The timid, shy girl became the toast of the class, a female advocate who would not only embrace one but multiple leadership roles and a star.
She found her confidence and her self-esteem soared like never before. Her first class degree was the icing on the cake.
In her celebratory statement on Linkedln seen by Legit.ng, the UI/UX designer said:
"This distinguished achievement is for the girl who years ago sat quietly at the back of every classroom, never participated in discussions, and would turn down every opportunity to lead.

"I transitioned into empowering fellow classmates, representing on the School of Computing Students’ Council as Academic Vice President, pitching award-winning ideas to stakeholders across the Caribbean, and becoming an advocate for women in ICT.
Many times along the journey I doubted my abilities, but through perseverance here I am, standing tall."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported how a Nigerian lady, Nnennia Ngozi Eze, bagged her Master of Business Administration (MBA) from the Imperial College of London.
Ngozi noted that if it was not for the coronavirus outbreak, she would be walking “across the podium at the Royal Albert Hall London” to get her certificate.
