Doris Darkwa, a Ghanaian lady who got disabled on one arm when she was three years old has succeeded in setting up her own company after she was denied several jobs due to her condition.
The lady narrated her heartbreaking story on Joy Prime's morning show which was a very emotional time.
Speaking to hosts Jay Foley and Emefa Mamaga, Doris revealed that she was involved in a terrible accident as a toddler when her arm entered a running corn mill and got chopped off.
She healed after months but had to live with the physical and emotional pain many years after. A major one was in her life of searching for a job.
According to Doris Darkwa, she was ready to give her all in any firm that decided to hire her but unfortunately, no company was ready to take her on, no matter how hard she tried.
The lady recalled moments where she would write applications, get shortlisted and even undergo phone interviews successfully. The scheduled date for work would come, she would show up and at the sight of her, be given one excuse or another.
Life kept on going that way but Doris decided never to give up.
Now, life feels so much better as she has surmounted all those challenges.
Doris Darkwa runs her own company and has finally also found the love of her life. The 32-year-old lady now glows with so much confidence.
