On her humanitarian work

I just love giving because I believe when you give, you will receive. Everything in life is a risk but when I help I feel fulfilled. For example, one of the student I trained, her name Gladys. She was deaf and dumb but she has a skill of sewing so, I trained her till she became the best in what she does and also her sister Mercylyn, she was deaf and dumb too so, I trained her in the field. She is good in making of different types of wigs and braids.

All my colorful braids and wigs you see were done by her. she was so good at it with the platform I helped them with and also don’t forget the boy I picked up from the street his name is Lekan who used to be a street boy doing minor works on the street of VI to cater for his grandma.

A lot of people were asking why I picked him up or try to help him. I know what I saw, so I gave him a helping hand. I adopted him and took care of him, trained him as a stylist so, he would have a means of livelihood and I’m proud of him.
