''I don’t look like what I have been through. I used to hawk on the streets 18 years ago. I sold toffees, books, foodstuffs, etc. We [my family] could hardly afford three square meals a day because my dad was so ill and couldn’t move. Mum nursed and loved him unconditionally.
''I knew since then that I was born for the battles in my way. So I fought my way through. Years later, the people who bought from me so we could afford a meal. I have paid my dues❤️. My family eats anything, whenever and where ever. My puppies even have options to choose from. LORD AM GRATEFUL. THE ESSENCE OF MY PRAISE IS CENTERED ON YOUR GRACE. A FEW PEOPLE KNOW MY STORY BUT SOON I WILL TELL THE WORLD WHO I AM AND HOW I GOT HERE. DON’T GIVE UP. YOU CAN MAKE IT TOO.''
