Juggling school work and sport is something most Papua New Guineans find hard to cope with at times but for Papua New Guinea footballer Wira Wama it was a testimony and a history set for himself and his family.

It was a dream became reality for Wama when he graduated on Sunday with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Digital Media Marketing from Maranatha Baptist University in Watertown, Wisconsin.

“It was a good feeling accomplishing something apart from football, especially a degree in education,” Wama said. “I never thought I would come this far but I can only say that God is so gracious, merciful and faithful to me.”

Through discipline, commitment and patient has brought him this far to achieve his dream.

“I would say all dream, success and compliments are vanity if you do not have Christ as your lord and personal savior.”
