First daughter of the late renowned Nigerian filmmaker Amaka Igwe, Ruby Igwe has bagged a law degree from the University of Kent, Canterbury.
She graduated on July 13, 2016 and posted pictures from her graduation ceremony on her Facebook page.
She also expressed her appreciation to everyone that supported her on her journey.
An emotional Ruby wrote:
“Memories are all I have now. Yesterday will forever be immortal. Another end where I begin. Lord Almighty, I can’t go far without thanking you. You raised a standard. You kept me sane. You loved me hard. And gave me promises through the pain.
Graduation is but two seconds, but I have had three heavy years of forever memories. Congratulations to all my friends, may limitless greatness surround us all.
I walked up to collect this degree, with a whole host of people in my heart that share this LLB because without them I’d need more than a GPS to figure out where I would be.
May God bless my family, those people; my tribe, my squad, my supporters’ club, my backbone, my support system, and the friends that are family.
Christine Ofosu-Ampadu, the Biggest Big Sis, you have been a rock to me. Big Bro, Fred Ofori, I dey hail. Manuella Onigbanjo, same to you. Bwari Babes and Guys, no need to talk too much. Brother from afar, Albert Asiamah, I cannot forget.
Elsinore, both the building and its inhabitants, especially the ones on Tuesday from 7-9pm; a ministry of great comfort. New Life Church, and all members, Pastor Aaron, too much to say, much more to feel.
Kristine Tumboken, you are one of God’s great gifts to humanity, and me. Dolapo Ipinola, you are one excellent spirit. Kene Ene, God bless you. Rhema Joy King, may we continue to royally execute God’s purpose!
Ah, too many to name.
The ones who celebrated me all over the globe, I cry writing this. My cup runneth over. I will be there in person or in spirit to rejoice with you in your own times.
Mummy, I know exactly where you were yesterday. It was one day when I didn’t need to look for you. May the road to and the culmination of our milestones continue to be wrought with God-inspired excellence.
It is time. LLB, I pronounce you done and dusted.
“May I never lose the wonder, oh the wonder, of your mercy; may I sing your hallelujah, hallelujah, Amen.”
