Nayzia Thomas shared a photo on Twitter last week that quickly went viral. Her mother captured the college sophomore in a hospital bed about to go into labor...while also finishing her finals.
WREG reports that Thomas is a psychology major at Johnson County Community College in Kansas City.

She said, “[I thought] ‘before all this gets crazy let me hurry up and finish this final.’” The very next day, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy.
Thomas was working three jobs and taking summer classes when she found out about her pregnancy.
“School is so important to me. I didn’t want [the pregnancy] to be in the way," Thomas said. She plans to take a month off to take care of her new son, but will return to school next semester.
