As a student one of the challenges is the break in transmission and flow of things educationally and when this happens, she has to divert her attention from education to business or learning a trade especially the disrupt in the educational system right now. For business, one of the challenges is what Nigerians want, they believe in getting or bleaching their skin quickly other than waiting for their skin to pop and look good, she’s trying to change the narrative that the skin needs attention and it takes time, this won’t happen overnight but it’s a gradual process.
