“This moment right here brought tears to my eyes as I reflected and had my life do a major replay of all the struggles, pain, and negative perceptions I have had to overcome to see this day. As a child, I looked through the Guinness book of world records and 18 years later I broke a Guinness world record,” she wrote.

“As a teenager, I pictured my face on billboards and tv and I saw it happen, I lived it. I watch Movies and motivational speeches done in the honorary gown of a doctorate honor and here I am honored with the least likely career choice.”“I have heard so many doubts that through dance I can amount to nothing not to talk of being celebrated or honored on this level Infact on many levels. I am here surrounded by Academics honoring me not for a certificate but for the application of every ounce of knowledge I have acquired in life both in school and on the street. DREAM BELIEVE DARE DO DR KAFFY ( ALÁJÒÓTÀ) #daretodream #drkaffy #danceboss.”
