According to Solace, her mother lost all the properties after her father passed away when she was 4 because she couldn't deliver a male child.
Left to cater for 5 daughters alone, her mother struggled to make ends meet.
She said there wasn't any term in primary school they weren't sent home for not paying their school fees.
She hawked with a wheelbarrow as an undergraduate to raise money

This was in a bid to get funds for the next tuition fees.
