After years of unemployment despite her academic credentials, a young Nigerian woman has come to the conclusion that knowledge is not the path to success.
Queen Salmat, as she is known, claims that the degree she earned in school yielded no fruit, so she has taken to selling charcoal in the meanwhile.
Salmat used the video-sharing platform to tell her tale in a video reel as part of a social media challenge. She continued to elaborate on her statement by posting a photo of herself in matriculation alongside a video of her packing charcoal to be sold and lamenting the fact that she had wasted her time earning an education.
“When they told you Education is the Key to Success but in reality it’s your padlock for your success.”
