A Nigerian student has taken to social media to celebrate her small business wins and commend herself for being resilient in the face of numerous challenges. The young lady revealed that she sells akara to make ends meet and it has been like that since 2019 when she began.
She shared the struggles she encountered since she started the akara business three years ago and how she made it thrive against all odds.
According to the student, she has combined the hustle with an undergraduate program at the university.
Her primary reason for going online to share the story was to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of her business.
She is in her 300 level and with just one year left till graduation, she is happy about what she accomplished so far.
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 an accident occurred in my shop but thanks to God I didn’t open that day as I was sick. At times I overthink myself cuz I feel I wasn’t doing enough for myself. At times I feel depressed and cry my eyes out.
“I kept on pushing no matter how old the sun is. At times under the rain. I continued my business with much happiness. I started glowing. I never regretted making this fruitful decision one day. Now I’m currently in the 300 level. Just one more year left for me. This business made me. Today makes it 3 years since I started frying Akara. Happy 3years anniversary to me.”
