Chebitok Bennie aka Chebbie was elated in May 2022 after she graduated from a South African based University.
I am now looking for a job or research opportunity anywhere, Chebitok Bennie, the Kalenjin girl who flew her mother to Nairobi and back, says after graduating with a degree of doctor of philosophy (PhD) in Psychology from the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.
Chebbie said her dream was to earn a PhD before hitting 30. She also disclosed how passionate she is about health (mental, physical and sexual).
“My academic journey has been humbling, more so having come from a humble background. It has been a journey full of challenges, premium tears, sacrifices, God’s abundant blessings, perseverance, resilience, hard work, pushing so hard when the brain is tired, and refusing to give up,” she said.”
She also noted that her mother’s wish was to see her earn a PhD while still under her mother’s roof and with no child.
And I fulfilled my mama’s wish, and she is over the moon celebrating my achievement,” she added.
