During her stay on the farm, she saw how people coped with backaches and mosquito bites to ensure they completed their daily quotas on the fields.
While in the university, the lady could not stay in the hostel because her parent could not afford such luxury.
“Working in the fields builds and molds a different type of character. A character that does not give up, and one with resilience and strength to withstand the hazards that come from that job.”
