“I have benefited a lot from the hours I work. I have lived in the UK for three years, paid my sister, and built a house in Ghana. I have a younger sister in Ghana who lives in the house. I may buy a house in the UK after my fifth year,” she said.
Janet explained that she works eight hours each at two different jobs. She also avoids parties and other fun activities to make enough money for herself.
“I work in the court from 7 am to 5 pm, then return home to sleep for two hours. After, I start work at Amazon, from 8:30 pm to 4:30 am. I then come home, sleep for two hours and return to the court. That was how I did it.”
