Popular Nigerian comedian, Helen Paul, has revealed that her family members never thought she would complete her secondary school education.
Helen Paul who recently completed her PhD and bagged a Doctorate degree, has now explained why her family never expected her to go that far.
In a chat with, punchng.com, the comedian said, her family expected her to drop out at secondary school level because she was very restless and playful. She said;
“In my family, no one believed that I would complete secondary school education let alone attend university. My mother always told me that if I finished from secondary school with good grades, she would kill a cow because I was very restless and playful. When I finished from secondary school and took my result to her, I demanded my cow but she was not forthcoming so I asked for a chicken, but she simply told me she had cooked rice and that I should go and eat it.
“To motivate me the more, she said that I should complete my university education, and that is when she would believe that I had really achieved a feat in life.”
