Missouri College Student Finished Her Finals While She Was in Labor

Talk about sacrifice!

Published

Nayzia Thomas, a sophomore at Johnson County Community College, was really determined to finish her semester. So determined in fact, that she completed her psychology exam while in a hospital bed. She gave birth to her son, Anthony, a little more than 12 hours later.

Yahoo! reported that, instead of putting off her final psych exam, Thomas decided to complete her assignment on time.

“It wasn’t due until the end of the week,”  Thomas told Yahoo! “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.”

Not only did she finish, she earned a 3.5 this semester. That’s what you call focus.

Thomas plans to return to classes after a month of caring for her newborn son during winter break. She will work with her boyfriend and other members of her support system to take care of her son while she takes 15 credits, working towards her degree.
