Survivors Joy Bishara & Lydia Pogu Graduate from SEU
Joy Bishara and Lydia Pogu, survivors of the horrific Boko Haram kidnapping in Chibok, Nigeria, have inspired countless people with their story of overcoming the odds and accomplishing so much in the name of education. Several media outlets have recently interviewed these extraordinary young women about their SEU graduation this spring, and their future plans.
Bishara’s degree, the Bachelor of Social Work, has given her the opportunity to be admitted to the Master of Social Work program at SEU. She hopes to begin a nonprofit organization to help girls and women who have been harmed by Boko Haram.
The SEU community is honored to have played a part in their success, and we are excited to see their future accomplishments.
