A young lady simply identified as Glory has given details of the typical 'hustling' life she has endured all her life and many Ghanaians have seemed inspired by her story.
In a recent interview with SV TV Africa, Glory revealed that she used to stay in Imo State in Nigeria when a pastor and his wife decided to hire her to Ghana.
Upon arrival, the young lady realized that she was being shortchanged because the tasks agreed on had been increased while the stipend remained far below expectation.
"They were paying me GHc100 a month to work from dawn to dusk in their house and wanted me to start working in their shop as well. I told them I could not do that any longer," she said.

With the help of her sister, Glory was able to pay off the transportation fee that the pastor and his wife spent on her and ended up on the street to start hustling for herself.
"I began working for different companies to enable me to survive. I was lucky I got one that paid me GHc40 a day and that is what I used to start my own business after two weeks. Now I sell fried yam by the street to help me survive," the hardworking lady said.

Lady who hustled makes it in life
An amazing young Ghanaian lady called Alice Delali recently marked her birthday and used the occasion to narrate her awe-inspiring story that has raised many eyebrows.
In a post sighted by YEN.com.gh on her LinkedIn handle, Alice disclosed that she was born in a village where the closest house was about a 10-minute walk away.
As though that was not a difficult place to start life from, she was also the eighth out of nine children and lost both parents long before she could find her feet in life.
