A beautiful 300 level Nigerian student, Amaka, who sells akara (bean cake), has inspired netizens with her life story.
In a short clip, she revealed how she combined schooling with her business and expressed gratitude to God for helping her through it.
In her words:
“On 20th November 2019, I started my akara business. I gained admission that same year. It wasn’t easy combining both school and business. One day accident happened in my shop but thanks to God I didn’t open that day. I was sick.
“At times I overthink cause I felt I wasn’t doing enough for myself. At times I feel depressed and cry my eyes out. I kept on pushing no matter the weather condition. No matter how hot the sun is. At times under the rain.
“I continued my business with so much happiness. I started glowing. I never regretted making this fruitful decision for one day. Now I am currently in 300 level. Just one year left for me. Happy 3 years anniversary to me. Today makes it 3 years I started frying akara.”

“When you don’t have anyone that’s giving and spending for you, you won’t have any choice than to continue pushing unless you want to give up completely.”
