Speaking in an interview with AfriMax, she said:
"The reason I am still single is because I haven't found the right man for me. But when I was still a young girl, several men were chasing after me. I dated several but I refused to get married before my siblings graduated because I was the one who was taking care of them."
Alphonsine said she waited for all of her siblings to graduate, but luck wasn't on her side...
"Men would appoach me for marriage and I would tell them no because I wanted to educate my siblings first, then marry later," she narrated.
The woman dedicated her life to helping educate her relatives until her old age.
Alphonsine, a teacher by photo, works mostly in Catholic mission schools.
