A dedicated MBA student and Influencer Manager in New York has garnered attention for her extraordinary commitment to her education
Students often go to great lengths to commute to college, showcasing their dedication to education. These commutes can range from long bus rides to extensive walks. They brave difficult weather conditions just so they can secure their education. However, one student in New York truly set a benchmark by taking a flight every week to attend her classes in Chicago. The video posted by a student who goes on TikTok as @loafs_ featuring the impressive feat has gained over 600k views on the platform. According to the creator's profile, she is an MBA student and Influencer Manager. The young woman poses in front of a mirror at the beginning of the video with the text overlay reading, "Come fly to class with me," captivating viewers from the get-go.
The video then cuts to the creator recording her traveling in a car on the highway. She gets on a 6 AM flight every week to attend her classes in New York City. Traveling via plane allows her to be productive during the commute as she utilizes the time to prepare for her classes. She reaches Chicago soon and hails an Uber to her campus. At the time of making the video, she was going to her final class of that quarter. After her class was over, she grabbed some lunch and caught a return flight to New York. The commute has become a routine task for her as she goes to get groceries right after landing and goes home to sleep.
The creator's insane efforts to get to her classes amazed other students on the platform and they shared their bewilderment in the comments section. @leonie.rd003 commented, "No longer complaining about my 15-minute bike ride to campus." @sureewhynot commented, "Depends on how long the flight is. To be honest, in NYC, most people commute 1-2 hours on the train to get to class too."
Many people were concerned about where the woman got the money to afford multiple flights while being a student. Seeing so many queries, the creator decided to answer all of them in two of her latest posts. In her first video answering queries, she remarks how she did not expect the video to become viral and get so many questions.
Many users wanted to know why she was taking up the intensive commute, for which she had two reasons. First, she wanted to make contacts and second, because none of her classes for that semester were remote, so she had to attend them physically. She also clarified that the university she attended in Chicago happened to be one of the top business schools in the country. Finally, she adds that while it may be easier for her to relocate to Chicago, she cannot leave her job in New York, which she loves.
People on the platform appreciated her hard-working lifestyle and expressed their thoughts in the comment section. @markyymaark commented, "My favorite full-time worker/student/influencer." @siggyj69420 said, "Good for you, girl if you can afford it and have everything you love, that's so perfect." Another user, @khalelaj, added, "Girl, kudos to you for making it all work!"
