- The lady was seen carrying blocks in a construction site along with other men
OUR MANIFESTO: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
It is said that working hard for something we don't care about is called stress and passion is working hard for something we love, but a young Nigerian lady is somewhat doing both.
While education may be said to be her passion, the student is also a manual labourer at a construction site.
In a Twitter post she made on Friday, March 26, @02franx shared pictures of herself with a head pan and flanked by male labour workers at a construction site. She captioned it: "Aside being a student.."
Many disbelieved her as they argued that there was no way one would carry cement on the head without a head tie.
"No cap this pic is fake
"You can't carry headpan on an empty head
"And there is nothing in that pan."
"Hmmm .. I am not here to spoil your hustle but if truly you work at a site like this.... you won’t be able to carry that headpan on your head without headtie."
To show she wasn't fake, she released a video - in a subsequent tweet - of her carrying cement in a construction site.
Watch the video:
@OlabameejiHamme4 reacting to the video proof said:
"You are truely a champ in making Dear. Keep it up Dear. There is light at the end of the tunnel. You will be Prosperous in Life Baby Girl. Blessing & Mercy will follow you everywhere you go Dear. Ameen."
"I love the spirit. grace shall locate u."
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young lady who is a bricklayer had showcased her work with pride.
31-year-old lady, Hlayisani Lorraine Sono, gathered much attention on the internet after photos showing her at a construction site surfaced.
Women Power Africa on their LinkedIn page said that the South African lady is also the founder of Mhani Builder Construction and Projects.
