The resilient young lady successfully completed her education and is currently a medical doctor.
She got a job offer at a hospital in England and the plan is to take her mother along with her.
"I am taking my mother with me. She suffered so much for me!! Right now, it is my turn to make her a Queen" she wrote.
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that despite the challenges in the barbering profession for women, a single mother, Fidelia Adogo, is helping to breach the gender disparity in the field with her rare skills.
The Ghanaian businesswoman hails from Atsiavi-Adogo Kope in the Volta Region and always drifted towards male-dominated professions.
Before starting a business as a professional barber, she attempted to join the military but couldn't afford to buy the enrolment forms due to financial constraints.
Fidelia Adogo had to resort to menial jobs such as selling pure water to cater for herself and her children, she said.
The mother of three admitted that it's been difficult due to her gender, as she recounted how she juggles her work and raising her children in an interview.
