Although The Bachelor of Communication degree graduate could not attend the official ceremony at the Safari Hotel with hundreds of others who graduated on Friday, the University’s leadership saw it fit to bestow a graduation ceremony for her in her hospital bed, as her family looked on with pride.
“She could not make it to the ceremony so we thought why can’t we have a ceremony for her at the hospital?”
According to a NUST spokesperson, Angy was admitted in the Intensive Care Unit a few days ago and as such could not make it to the official ceremony
Uumati served as Information and Publicity member of the Student Representative Council.
After the ceremony in the hospital ward her frieds told her: “We got your back, Angy. Get well soon.”
