The length at which a person's determination can bring about great achievements can be really astounding. A young man’s story with the Twitter name King T is one inspiring life-changing narrative.

On Friday, May 22, King T said he defeated brain cancer twice and had three separate brain surgeries. That is not everything. After conquering those, he did a six-week radiotherapy treatment twice and had to walk and swallow food from scratch.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that many Nigerians always shine in their different endeavours abroad.

The latest in that crop of people is Austin Chibuike Ikpeama. According to his brother, Ikpeama O Tochuckwu, Chibuike got his PhD at the young age of 24 after finishing strongly from the University of Sciences, Philadelphia.

An Imo-Indigene, he got a doctorate degree in physical therapy. He is from Chokoneze community in Ezinigittee Mbaise local government. He was born and raised in the US.

In other news, Ryan Matthews beat the odds that were stacked against him in life and succeeded. He was 17 years old when he charged of a crime he did not commit.

That made him spend five years in prison on a death row. His trouble started in April 1997 when a masked thief shot a store owner who refused to give him money and fled.

Though he was innocent and there was no evidence against him, the then-teenager was found guilty by a team of 11 white jurors and sentenced to death at the age of 19.

His liberation came when an investigation by William Sothern and Clive Stafford Smith of the Louisiana Crisis Assistance Centre uncovered the whole truth. He was released in 2004.

“I just kept hope that eventually one day the truth might come out. I tried to keep my mind outside those walls.

“I read. I exercised. I wrote. I couldn’t let that place get me down. I couldn’t go crazy. I mean, they’d win. I’m already in for something I didn’t do, so if I lose my mind, I’m a lost cause and I’ll never get out,” he spoke about how he bore it all.
