Van Vicker, an actor, just received his first degree after 21 years of attending Senior Secondary School.
His single mother, he claims, did not have the money to assist him with continuing his education when he graduated from Senior Secondary School in 1997.
He is convinced that if Free SHS had been accessible at the time, he would not have completed his first degree 21 years after completing his senior cycle schooling.
”21years later, here I stand before you with 3 achievements during my graduation; to God be the Glory. 1. 1st class honors. 2. Best Student in Strategic. communication. 3. Best Communication Student Award. The above is within the context of my 2021 post on social media and is in no way presumptuous but uprightly to inspire – I could not enroll at a tertiary institution in 1997 because my single mother did not have the funds. If free SHS was available back in the day, most likely I would have graduated in 2000/2001. My career took off and I have been blessed but as someone who relishes education getting that degree was just a matter of time. I complete my Masters program this December and I am sorely motivated and committed to go even beyond, God willing. I thank all those who supported me and is supporting me during this journey”, he wrote on Instagram.
