It is now a habit
The 25-year-old said that even though she is pregnant, she still shows up for work because it has become a habit, and not doing so could make her sick.
She revealed that one of the advantages she has over her male counterparts is that sometimes people bring tasks to her because they are amazed by the idea that a woman could work as a carpenter.
The mother said that she had boys as friends mostly in secondary school. She stated that she apprenticed when she was still in senior secondary school.
My husband never believed
Rachael stated that her husband never believed she was into carpentry when they were dating until the man saw it.
Speaking about her love for furniture making, she added that the profession unlike other petty works brings income in big batches that allows her to solve needs with it.
