Zambian professor melts hearts for helping single mother baby sit in his classBy Diggers Editor on 22 Sep 2017
In this video, American talk show host Ellen DeGeneres interviews a Zambian professor Dr Henry Musoma, who teaches at A&M University in Texas on his decision to help a single mother baby sit in class.
This professor went above and beyond to ensure his student could attend the lecture and make the most of it.
Ashton Robinson is a student at Texas A&M University as well as a mother to baby Emmett.
On September 7, she made a Facebook post praising one of her professors for his commitment to ensuring she made it to class.
As a single mom, Robinson sometimes struggles to juggle school and her son, especially when things come up and she can’t find a babysitter.
When Robinson emailed her professor, Dr Henry Musoma, to inform him of why she wouldn’t be able to attend class, he told her to just bring Emmett along.
Not only did Dr Musoma invite tiny Emmett into his classroom, he held him during the lecture so Robinson could take notes!
Robinson explained on Facebook:
“So today I emailed my Professor before class saying that something came up and I didn’t have a sitter for Emmett and he called me back and said to please bring him!”
In words that any parent can relate to, Robinson continued:
“Being a single mom is so challenging but it’s people like Dr Henry Musoma that make life just a tiny bit easier!”
Robinson told her followers that actions like this make her very proud to attend Texas A&M University:
“This is why I’m so proud to be an Aggie! Definitely something I’ll never forget and can’t wait to someday tell Emmett that it’s because of people like this that mommy was able to graduate from the best university in the world.”
She even included a short video of Emmett sitting contentedly in Dr Musoma’s arms during the lecture.
Robinson’s original post has since been shared over 12,500 times with reposts from other Facebook pages getting even more shares and likes.
In addition to people being inspired by this helpful professor, others on Facebook have shared similar stories in the comments of Robinson’s post.
