Her teacher, Fentuo, upon realising her absence followed up on her but she lied that she was being transferred to another school.
Fentuo who knew the actual reason behind her absence asked her to return to school with the assurance that he spoke to the school administration to allow her study at his expense.
Ephya said a gesture like that especially from a young man who was trying to build his own life after university was one she cherished and forever will.
The young woman said both of her parents were around but her father paid little to no attention to her education.
She concluded by giving credit to Fentuo for the person she is now.
"I am forever grateful. For everything I'm becoming, part is because you believed in me and the other part is because you availed yourself to be used by God. I love you. My forever and a day", Ephya wrote.
