Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu, who were Former students of Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok in Borno state, have graduated from Southeastern University in the United States after escaping from Boko Haram terrorists in 2014.

Bishara graduated with a degree in social work, and Pogu earned her degree in legal studies and graduated on April 30.

According to the duo, they escaped by jumping off the truck while being driven away from their community by the terrorists.

Recounting their ordeal, Bishara told GMA3;

“I remember thinking about what my mum would do at that moment then I prayed. I just remembered a voice in my head saying ‘jump out’. I knew I was going to die either way. I chose to die and that was how I jumped out.”

On how she felt the day she graduated, Bishara said;

“It was awesome, I felt great. I remember being told that I wasn’t going to be able to finish high school; that I was dumb. I never gave up or listened to all the negative talks. It was exciting to walk on that stage after being told ‘you can’t do it’.”
