Perseverance in the attainment of life goals is one pertinent thing everyone tries to grasp. And in today’s story, we have come across one lady named Alice Gyamfi who has gone through all the thrives to pass her New York Bar.

The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) is a voluntary bar association for the state of New York. The mission of the association is to cultivate the science of jurisprudence; promote reform in the law; facilitate the administration of justice; and elevate the standards of integrity, honor, professional skill, and courtesy in the legal profession.

She took to her post saying this;

“I passed the New York Bar!

When I told my grandma I was going to law school she started calling me her “granddoctah”! I told her she couldn’t call me Doctor just yet. She sent me off to law school with $100 and an anointing. This degree belongs to her.”

I can trace my family’s lineage back over 17 generations. Each generation of women fought as everything from mothers to warriors and yet not one of them were taught to read. This degree was my warfare. The battle I fought with my tongue, knees bowed and hopes raised toward heaven.

God, I’ve never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed seen begging for bread. I thank God that the generations after me will never know illiteracy again.

This was the short note she added for hitting a milestone in her education.
