Not even labour could stop this American student from completing her finals.

Nayzia Thomas, from Missouri, US, recently went viral on Twitter after posting a photo of herself completing her final exam while in labour.

Her mom quickly snapped a picture of her typing away on her laptop while preparing to give birth to her son, Anthony Johnson.

“My mom took this pic and it's the perfect explanation of my life,” she wrote. “Yes I’m about to have a baby, but final SZN ain't over yet.”


The college sophomore studies psychology at Johnson County Community College in Kansas and attended classes until she was 39 weeks pregnant, reports Yahoo Lifestyle.

Surprisingly, Nayzia went into labour ahead of schedule, but that didn’t stop the student from finishing her psych exam to avoid getting an ‘incomplete’ mark on her report card. 

But the first class student’s dissociative identity assignment wasn’t due until later that week, reports Cosmopolitan.

“It wasn’t due until the end of the week but my goal was to try to have everything done before.

“[I thought] ‘before all this gets crazy let me hurry up and finish this final,’” she says.

The new mom plans to take a well-deserved break from her studies to take care of her newborn son and will get back to studying next semester.

“My mom was a single mom,” she said. “We’re all in school and getting our degrees.”
