- A Nigerian lady has narrated the story of how she sacrificed her ambition for her boyfriend but the man ended up leaving her in the cold
- According to Amanda Chisom, she got a scholarship to pursue a degree abroad but had to abandon the offer because she wanted to stay with her boyfriend in Nigeria
- Amanda says if she ever got the chance again, she will not repeat the mistake, because the man has since married another woman
In 2013, Amanda Chisom got a generous offer to study abroad, but she missed it. It was deliberate though because she reasoned that it would be good to stay back in Nigeria with her then-boyfriend.
The admission and scholarship Amanda got would have enabled her to study at the University of Reading, United Kingdom. But she said she chose her man over the big offer.
