Hon. Morrison was speaking at the launch of the Young Women Entrepreneurship Initiative in Accra on Wednesday, August 19, 2020, when she said she started hustling at the age of 23 years old. She noted that she has never worked for anybody.
According to Morrison, her first job is working as a member of parliament. She adds that she never relied on her monthly pay cheque as she didn’t even know when to go and withdraw her money.
The Gender Minister emphasised that working for one’s self gives one the opportunity to display their capacities and skillsets at work.
