Motivated TB Joshua’s teachings, Nleya received a distinction in Law in the University of Pretoria, South Africa. Thereafter, she had a successful internship at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands.
“When I was there, he told me that I should go for my masters in the best university in the world, which is Harvard University,” Mary-Jean narrated, adding that she was daunted by the prospect as it is a well known fact that “admission into Harvard University is incredibly difficult.”
Remarkably, the talented law-student received admission to the revered university. “I am thrilled and excited to tell you all today that I gained admission into Harvard University,” she declared to the joyful congregation.
But upon learning of the huge fees involved, she was doubtful as to whether the scholarship would be continued. “I ended up telling him (T.B. Joshua) and he committed to paying $82,123! I will be going to commence my studies any moment from now,” she gratefully remarked.
Mary-Jean advised youth to look for a ‘mentor’ who would inspire them in life. “I didn’t believe in myself enough and my potential to apply to the world’s best university. But because I had a mentor, a father to inspire and encourage me to apply, I drew a greater plan. I was inspired to stop living within a four foot ceiling and to reach for the top and make the sky my limit.”
In his comments, TB Joshua stated that she was just one of the many students worldwide who were receiving scholarships. “What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you,” he declares.
