Fatoumata had pains the night before sitting for her paper but brushed it off as she was determined to sit for her examination.
When she went to school, the pain escalated forcing her to leave the tests midway and go welcome her bundle of joy.
“I worked up the courage to do the exam the next day, without saying anything to my husband or the school,” she added
The teenage mother did not want anything to stop her from achieving her dreams so she earlier chose not to tell anyone the kind of pain she was experiencing.
“I was worried they would ask me to stay at home or visit the doctor.”
It was only once the 18-year-old arrived at the hospital that she realized she was about to give birth. she said
the mum’s baby boy was born after quick labor, she handed him over to her parents and rushed back to finish her baccalaureate exams in Physics and French.
Although the student said she and her son are both in good health. Her husband, a policeman, was thrilled and kept telling people Fatoumata is a strong, terrific woman.
