"When I completed my university education, I did not get a job. The ones I got the bosses wanted to have affairs with me before they employed me. Someone told me if I don't give in, I will suffer in getting a job because most of the girls are allowing the bosses to have affairs with them. I stayed home for seven years without a job."

Jacqueline said her husband was the sole breadwinner of the house, which was stressful considering the economic situation at the time.

She reached out to a friend who helped her travel to Norway to study for her Master's degree and also get to stay.
