A Kenyan man has left social Media impressed and almost in tears after taking his mother to Harvard University almost 24 years later after she missed his graduation ceremony.
Chris Mburu shared the photos on social media while telling his story of how his 83-year-old grandma had to miss the event since he was broke and couldn’t afford to fly her from Kenya.
“When I graduated here 24 years ago, my mother was absent from the ceremony, because it was too expensive for her to make the trip from my native village in Kenya to the United States,” said Mburu in the post.
Last week, Mburu got his mom from her village in Kenya and facilitated her journey to the United States. The post had many commenting to congratulating him for his action.
“So you can imagine the joy I felt last week as I brought her for her first visit to the university, at the age of 83! Though uneducated herself, my mother has always valued education and indeed remains one of the smartest people I know,” he said.
