This lady, Adebayo Oluwatoyin, who sold noodles and egg to sponsor herself through University and also her sister through secondary school, is now looking back with pride. Despite the unfavorable condition, Oluwatoyin still graduated with a Second Class Upper (2.1) in Accounting.
Felt like yesterday when all I always looked forward to was the long sessional holiday... 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 sister...
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.It'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!
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, it'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, mama's smile revealed her pride in me.
