A Nigerian woman drops out of UNILAG at the 300 level in order to start a new life in Europe.

A Nigerian woman has abandoned her education and come to Europe in the hopes of building a new career path.Falilat, the lady, claimed that she dropped out of the University of Lagos in her third year and wanted to travel to Finland.

She had spent four years seeking admission after finishing secondary school, so abandoning her education was one of the most difficult decisions she had to make in her life, but she believed it was necessary given the ASUU strike and other issues that were causing her frustration.Falilat revealed her experience, as well as images of herself in Finland, on the microblogging network Twitter.

She wrote;

“Leaving my three-year plus Unilag program after four years to start over in another country was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make in my life…

What factors influenced your decision? Is it really worth it? Is it something I’d do again?

The ASUU strike in 2020 broke me. My previous experience had not been pleasant; the Nigerian federal university system had almost claimed my life, but I was determined to complete my studies before moving on to another country.

“I asked myself, “Do I want to spend the rest of my 20s pursuing a BSc degree?”

I started my investigation and discovered that the policies of private institutions were not friendly to me, so I decided to broaden my horizons by applying abroad.My first option was the United Kingdom, but I can’t afford to live there.

One night, I had a conversation with @Deshsmalls, and he informed me about Finland. This was in November/December, and I decided to go ahead and do it anyhow in January.The following year, I completed my application and received my residence permission. Apart from my supervisor, I couldn’t share it with many others because it sounded like a ridiculous concept, and I had a lot of fear.I wondered if I was doing the right thing juggling Unilag, my Finland application, and working full-time. Is it going to be worth it?

It was not an easy decision, but I can guarantee that the experience would be unique, making it worthwhile for me. Khaki isn’t leather, for sure!Thanks to everyone who helped me along the way, especially my employer, who believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself, and everyone in my life who didn’t know much but were good to me.”
