Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported how a Jamaican lady graduated with a first-class in computer science after tackling her low self-esteem.
Tuwanie Morgan said her social 'difficulty' relegated her to the background and made her a back-bencher in school for many years as she didn't so much want to get noticed. She also said she turned down opportunities to take on leadership roles just so she won't be seen.
However, a day came when she had to change the narrative herself. She grew to be proud of herself and this brought about a turnaround and increased her self-confidence and esteem. She now embraced leadership positions and has led her class in various leadership capacities.
