Nothing says dedication like a student who isn’t about to let anything get in between her and her final exams — not even going into labor.
According to People, college sophomore Nayzi Thomas made a pact to herself that her pregnancy wasn’t going to stop her from finishing up the semester. And apparently she made good on that promise because here she is, literally finishing up one of her tests as she waits for her baby to arrive.

You can’t say that’s not pretty hardcore, okay? Especially when you hear about the hardship she had to go through just to have that baby. Honestly, finals would have been the last thing on my mind.
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

People were definitely impressed, but some mothers could relate — they knew all about balancing that school grind with that mom life.

Also, can we just talk about how this girl is slaying her finals while she’s about to through one of the most painful experiences of her life and somehow she still looks like a fucking queen?
Okay but can we appreciate the hair though? Its one thing to be pregnant, its another to be pregnant during finals. But to pregnant during finals and still slaayyyyyyy your hair…..I'm amazed.
