A Nigerian student took to social media to celebrate her small business victories and to praise herself for remaining resilient in the face of adversity.
The young lady claimed that she sells akara to make ends meet and that she has done so since 2019.
She talked about the challenges she’s had since starting her akara business three years ago, and how she’s managed to make it survive despite all odds.
According to the student, she has coupled the hustling with a university undergraduate program.
Her main motive for going online to share the story was to commemorate her company’s third anniversary.
She is in her 300 level and pleased with her progress so far. She has one year left before graduating.
In her words; “On 20th November 2019, I started my akara business. I gained admission that same year it wasn’t easy combining both school and business. One day accident occurred in my shop but thanks to God I didn’t open that day as I was sick. At times I overthink myself cuz I feel I wasn’t doing enough for myself. At times I feel depressed and cry my eyes out.
I kept on pushing no matter how old the sun is. At times under the rain. I continued my business with much happiness. I started glowing. I never regretted making this fruitful decision for one day. Now I’m currently in 300 level. Just one more year left for me. This business made me. Today makes it 3 years I started frying Akara. Happy 3years anniversary to me.”
