A young Nigerian Lady named Oluwadamilola Rodiat Ayankunbi has made her uneducated mother proud after earning an academic degree from a polytechnic in Nigeria, West Africa.
Oluwadamilola’s mother sells food in a market to raise funds to sponsor her education and despite their poor background, she was able to graduate successfully with the help of her mother.
Celebrating her achievement, Oludamilola Rodiat shared a proud moment with her mother who sells bean cake (locally called akara). In the video shared, her mother was seen writing “Iya Alakara” on her daughter’s white cloth.
