Sabriya dropped out of school in 1999 due to financial problems and later got married.
Even though she got married early enough, Ms Ahmed, 39, never gave up on her childhood dreams of pursuing a medical officer course and after 20 years, she decided to go back to school.
The mother of six wrote her 2021 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams alongside her two kids.
“I left school while in my second term of form two at Qubaa Secondary School in Mombasa because of financial problems and I got married,” she said.
Her daughter scored a B plain but her boy was yet to receive his results by press time.
“My daughter has scored a B plain but we are yet to get my son's results.”
She told the press that she loves school because education is the only key to success.
“It has been good learning with my kids and helping each other with our revision. We vowed to pass our exams well,” she said.
Ms Ahmed said her spouse has been always there for them and supported throughout their education.
“My husband is a cop and I left school to marry him but he is loving and always supported our education,” she said.
She did her KCSE examinations at Newlife Secondary School in Banisa Sub county, Mandera.
