  • In an emotional Facebook post, Major shared her accomplishments with people

A single mom is set to graduate with two degrees in the coming weeks after giving birth to twins in the middle of her studies.

Montoya Major, 23, will graduate from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on August 16 with a bachelor’s degree in cardiovascular sonography and a master’s in health science.

Although the feat of two degrees is already astounding, the moment is made more incredible because Major accomplished her education goals with one-year-old twin daughters by her side.

Major shared her accomplishments on Facebook and confessed she almost gave up after she discovered she was pregnant just five months after staring at Nova Southeastern in 2017.

‘I ALMOST GAVE UP! The Devil really had me,’ the mom-of-two wrote. ‘NOTHING could have prepared me for the journey that I’ve been through…Our program started off with 26 people and I am now 1 of 17 that will be graduating.’

The post went on to detail the stress Major went through when discovering she was pregnant at the beginning of her graduate program.

At the time, her program director suggested she take time off and return the following year to complete the degree. But Major thought it would be ‘nearly impossible’ to finish with two infants by her side.

‘I went to class every single day literally until the day I gave birth,’ she detailed, adding: ‘I was determined to finish.’

Her twins were born via C-section in May 2018.

The Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993 recommends for new mothers to get 12 weeks leave following giving birth. But those recommendations don’t always apply to full-time students like Major.

‘Only after a week of giving birth via C-section I was back in class because I was told it was “unacceptable that I missed a week of school,”‘ she said.

Major went on to explain the difficulties of being a single mom taking care of two children while attempting to accomplish her education dreams, even revealing there were times she had high anxiety and worried about failing classes.
