She opened up on how she determined to support the young siblings even if it meant using part of her salary to cater for them.
"Their mother died 9 years and their dad about 2-3 years. Both parents were under 40 years. I give them a part of my salary every month and tho not enough, it sustains them a bit,"
The young lady expressed sadness that the parents of the intelligent girl were not alive to celebrate the achievement with their daughter.
"How I wish her parents were around to see how proud she made them tho they had to move to the village after their demise. Tomorrow, she will go for her prospectus. May we not bury our children and May they not bury us in their youth!" her post read.
