Speaking to Sammy Kay Media, in a video sighted by, Ages said she decided to permanently relocate to Dubai and start a life there on her third visit because she realised she could make more money in the Middle Eastern country. After comparing the exchange rate of the dirham currency to the cedis.

“The money here is heavier than the cedis, and on my third visit, I decided to stay permanently and find something to do. I'm a professional hairdress, but I was operating a boutique in Ghana and so when I moved here, I realised there were a lot of boutiques here and so I decided to open a salon after doing some nenial jobs here to raise money," she said.

Although she is making some good money in Dubai, Ages said working in the country was tough because they do not get enough time to rest.

The time here is not enough for the work we do here. Time runs faster here than in Ghana, and so when we start work at 10am we close at 4am. We don't sleep in Dubai" she added.

Madam Joyce further advised Ghanaian youth to make sure they learn a craft before they travel as that would fetch them more money than the menial jobs abroad.
