She also lost her passion for the degree, and it didn't make sense to continue pursuing it. The young lady didn't want to get into too much detail about why she dropped out because it was a very emotional topic for her.

Family disowned her

After dropping out, her family disowned her. However, she doesn't regret her decision as it was well-informed. She tried every avenue before dropping out, but none worked. Thato also said she holds no grudge over UP and would highly recommend it to those pursuing tertiary education.
