Toke Makinwa reminisces on her UNILAG days, as she ends her book tour

"I Was Once Advised To Withdraw From School" — Toke Makinwa reminisces on her UNILAG days, as she ends her book tour 
Here is latest gist as Media personality, Toke Makinwa ended her book tour yesterday at her alma mater, UNILAG.
Toke Makinwa decided to end it there because it reminds her of the times in the institution when she gave up hope of an education after the school asked her to leave because of her poor grades.

She wrote;
“I haven’t always made the right choices but I am thankful for
grace. I’m no where near perfect, I struggle sometimes but I’m learning to lean on the grace of God to catch me when I fall. Its quite emotional for me to end my book tour at the University of Lagos cos I remember my time there, I wasn’t the brightest student, I had potential but I was a troubled young girl, I didn’t care much for my books till one day I was advised to withdraw, and I hit rock bottom. I had no where else to go, my grades were bad, so bad the school asked me to leave. Something happened (grace), there was a meeting with all department heads I was granted mercy on humanitarian grounds.

My lecturers knew I had it in me but I couldn’t see what they saw, they decided to give me an extra year to turn it around. It was humiliating, I started not quite at the bottom but it was a struggle. My mates had graduated and I was in a new class and boy it was hard but I did it. I don’t know how but I made a 2:2. Instead of 4 years I spent 5/6 but I made it out. It is important for me to go back and meet with the students in Unilag, the ones doing great and the students that are struggling too. Sometimes it takes sharing your story to inspire someone to believe in themselves and I’m always up for it. Dates will be revealed soon, #onbecomingmediatour #OnBecominginUnilag #TMisComingHome #rockbottomtorockstar #Godschild”
