In the wake of the Guinness World Records craze experienced in Nigeria, one lady has completed her challenge; making the world's longest handmade wig.
After days of hard work and encouragement from friends and netizens, she completed the task of making the longest handmade wig.
Following the completion of the challenge, Williams spoke with YEN.com.gh about the experience and challenges she faced.
The businesswoman recounts that she was shocked when she got the approval on the 4th of June but could not start immediately due to the need for proper planning.
And when she got to planning, she opened up about some difficulties she faced.
"I encountered many difficulties especially when we could not get any stadium or field the same length as the wig.
We could not find a stadium up to 400 meters. We had to go back to the drawing board. However, none of these difficulties influenced the final design or process.
It in fact made me search deeper and brought out the best of me."
Helen Williams spent 1 week (7 days) making the wig which she says measures almost 400 meters
On how she pushed through difficult times during the making of the wig, she says:
"I did not want to let my family down even when I felt weak ( I thought about people who genuinely care about me) it gave me strength."
On her final words:
"I am happy to be the first person In the World to make and complete this attempt. There is nothing impossible if you put your mind to something and work very hard towards it."
