"It was the last one where I was paid GHc700. At that point, something came up. I had issues with my administrator. He said I was too bold because I asked him a question. Everybody kept saying I was too bold."
She said she was queried many times until she decided to leave. Her words:
"They didn’t even give me an opportunity to explain myself. I was always wrong at every point and every turn. I got home around 6pm and I cried so much. I simply concluded that I was going to resign. Immediately I got my February salary, I dropped my resignation letter and left."
