As the year is coming to an end and the holidays are near, it’s the merry-making season that everyone is eagerly waiting for, but not all of us is that fortunate enough to enjoy the holidays just yet. Some of us are prepping for their finals, which is obviously something that needs full concentration and dedication.
I know this sounds weird plus, having a baby and giving exams have no whatsoever anything in common but wait till you read the story of this girl who finished her finals while giving birth at the hospital. You say what? Yeah don’t screw your brain much, it actually happen and here’s how it all went down.
Nayzia Thomas is a psychology major at Johnson County Community College in Kansas City, MO. She was 39 weeks pregnant at the time on the verge of having her first baby. But her finals collided with her labor day, which made her think fast and whether to postpone the exam after her delivery or not. But as a strong woman she is, she opted to finish her papers as she didn’t want any risk of not being able to complete it.
Here is a picture her mother snapped while she is giving her finals.

Nayza took it to twitter sharing her moment, where people noticed her hard work and dedication. And seriously, I haven’t seen anyone give that much important to their school work. It does inspire us a lot. Well, it’s for sure that she is not the one to back down.
Here’s another update on the newborn baby with the father in the frame.
update: on 12/12/17 we had a healthy baby boy. However, I experienced major blood loss & my body went into shock post-delivery. It was very scary, but his father was right there to take over when I went unconscious. We are blessed! AND I’m finishing the semester w/ a 3.5 GPA!💪🏾 pic.twitter.com/CLFGjf3hLD

After completing her papers Nayzia gave birth her newborn son Anthony Johnson, on Dec. 12 at 1:30 p.m.
She adds, “It wasn’t due until the end of the week — finals week is Dec. 11 to tomorrow —but my goal was to try to have everything done before. [I thought] ‘before all this gets crazy let me hurry up and finish this final. School is so important to me. I didn’t want [the pregnancy] to be in the way. That’s what people expect. You’re a teen mom, you’re a young mother. That’s why my mom took that picture. It shows [I] follow through.”
After the twitter post got viral with over 30,000 retweets and over 132,000 likes some people noticed her perfect hair in the pictures.
Okay but can we appreciate the hair though? Its one thing to be pregnant, its another to be pregnant during finals. But to pregnant during finals and still slaayyyyyyy your hair…..I’m amazed.
