Felt like yesterday when all I always looked forward to was the long sessional holidayâ€¦ This is just so I could come home and make money for the next session. I had to find ways to make money because there was little my mum could do to meet all the expenses for me and my sisterâ€¦
Some people laughed at me, some encouraged me while some invested their change in my business.. I sold noodles and egg, and from the little I made I made sure I saved something every day. At the end of the three months break, I had enough money to pay my sister and my school fees, my house rent and enough money to last me a whole semester.
By the grace of God I have completed my degree with a Second Class Upper in Accounting and right now my sister is waiting for her admission into the university too. Looking back now, itâ€™s my success story because with that kind of hustle, nobody had to run helter skelter to look for money to cater for those expenses. Just right there, mamaâ€™s smile revealed her pride in me.
Itâ€™s not difficult to be humble, decent, sincere. It can only be difficult if you allow greed control you. I celebrate this good lady. Congratulations, Oluwatoyin!
