She reminds me of Edna Frimpong, The Shoemaker Girl. Well done Bernice. It is beautiful to see our ladies doing stuff that is considered the preserve for men. Besides she is not a dropout, how cool is that? Its often said that dropouts are the ones who take up trades we consider menial.
Great to see this, so inspiring. Bernice had indeed done well and challenged herself from most females in such talented handicraft skills counting against all odds. What men can do, women can also do it even better as the old saying goes.

Congratulations Lady, the sky should not be a limit. I urge our fellow men to patronize her. Just as banks use female front staff and we men patronize such banks, I encourage our fellow men to patronize her as well.

What amazed many was how @OgechiOkoye7 achieved perfect 'friction lines' on her client's heads. Her skill is too obvious to overlook.
