Here’s a woman who’s about to give birth, taking her final, looking great, and staying calm.
In the photo, new mom Nayzia Thomas sits in a hospital bed, looking calm and collected, while an open textbook sits at her side and her laptop remains poised on her lap.
“My mom took this picture, and it’s the perfect explanation of my life,” Thomas captioned the photo. “Yes, I’m about to have a baby but finals season ain’t over yet.”
The tweet has over 130,000 likes because it sends such an empowering message.
Thomas is a sophomore studying psychology at Johnson County Community College in Kansas, Missouri, according to Yahoo! Lifestyle. And she wasn’t going to let giving birth stand in the way of her GPA.
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 the photo. It shows I follow through.
She took her finals while going into labor, and just a few hours after the photo was taken, Thomas gave birth to a baby boy.
People commended Thomas on how poised she was while juggling all of her responsibilities.
Now that’s successfully multitasking.
