Not all heroes wear capes, friends. Sometimes, they wear hospital gowns! Nayzia Thomas is a real-life superhero, based on a photo she shared on Twitter. The Missouri woman was due to give birth, but as a student, she had some deadlines she had to take care of first. The photo shows Nayzia finishing finals while giving birth. It’s good she is such a skilled multi-tasker already, that skill will come in handy now that she’s a mom!
Finishing finals WHILE giving birth. We just can’t applaud enough for this amazing woman.

Nayzia is a student at Johnson County Community College Kansas City. Her final project wasn’t due for another week, but Nayzia knew she’d have a lot going on (after having a baby and all), so the star student wanted to get it finished and turned in early. Now that’s what we call planning ahead!
Nayzia got her final done and turned in, and then directed her attention to the small matter of HAVING A BABY. She shared some updates after her first tweet, and it sounds like things got pretty scary.
update: on 12/12/17 we had a healthy baby boy. However, I experienced major blood loss & my body went into shock post-delivery. It was very scary, but his father was right there to take over when I went unconscious. We are blessed! AND I'm finishing the semester w/ a 3.5 GPA!💪🏾 pic.twitter.com/CLFGjf3hLD

Locked in that 3.5 GPA though, like a BOSS.
Last update: got a blood transfusion b/c of all the blood loss & we finally headed home today! Thanks to everyone again for the positivity and love. Its been hard trying to cope with being so close to death, but I can't thank God enough for being able to share my story!! 💓🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/OS3ltMocHT

Nayzia and her baby boy came through it all with flying colors, and got to go home after just a couple of days. her story touched a lot of people, many of whom wanted to share their own superhero accomplishments.

Honestly, could not love this more. THIS is what dedication looks like. Bad-ass.
My classmate in nail tech school finished her services Wednesday, next day gave birth, came back on Monday(we don’t have class on Fridays) took her practical final, came back the next day took her written final and just mailed in her licensing application!
Y’all run this shit!!!

One of my grandmothers professors wouldn’t let her miss her final… and she was literally in labor…. so she left the hospital, took the final like squeezing my mom back in… then went back and had her.

It’s not easy being a student, and it’s so much harder being a student with a baby. Hats off to these seriously amazing women, who will no doubt run the world one day.
