Sharing her story on LinkedIn, Vee said:
I have graduated from Harvard. Five years ago my teacher told me I shouldn’t even bother applying to Oxford for my undergrad because I wasn’t ‘good enough’.
"And fast forward ….. Last year I graduated my undergraduate degree from Oxford University, and as of 4 days ago I’ve graduated my postgraduate degree in International Education Policy (officially) from Harvard University.
"This is just a little friendly reminder to teachers, guardians and people in general who play a role in children’s lives, just because it hasn't been done, doesn’t mean it can't be done. Let’s make sure our students know that."

"I was told by a former boss that I was too old and should not bother finishing my degree. That I was wasting my time. I went home crushed! After thinking about it for about 2 days and processing that statement I went right back to studying my books. I am one class (capstone) away from graduating. I am also (something I never considered possible) thinking of enrolling in a master's program. Who knew???!!!"
Nikki Magee commented:
"You did! Always be your own cheerleader, if I listened to some of these negative people I would still be sitting in the same places."
