Being in Labor Couldn't Even Stop This Woman From Taking Her College Exam
We know women are capable of doing anything — but when a woman did this, even we were surprised.
Tommitrise Collins, a student at Middle Georgia State University, had one day to take an exam for her psychology class.
But on that day, she was also waiting to give birth to her first child.
Despite being in labor, the 21-year-old student decided that she would go through with the exam if she wasn't in too much pain.
"It took me 4-5 hours after the opening of the test to try to put the pain to the side and do it so I wouldn't have to do it later and I could enjoy my newborn," Collins told Fox 5. "She is my life now, and the way I look at it is, she will always have me to depend on, so my goals will not be put on hold."
Collin's sister, Shanell Chapman, took a picture of the occurrence and shared it on Facebook saying: "This is what you call 'Strong Priorities'. Contractions 3 minutes apart and still takes her Psychology Test! You are going to be a great mom baby sis!"
Since then, the post has gone viral.
The new mother finished the two-hour test in an hour and 30 minutes and passed with a B grade.
After 20 hours of labor, Collins gave birth to a healthy baby girl named Tyler Elise.
"I don't want to just barely make it by, I want my child to live comfortably," Collins said, according to Hello Giggles. "And I want to show people that just because I am considered a young mother doesn't mean I have to be considered a bad mother."
