My name is Mercy, I'm 19 years old and I'm the owner of TrendingGistz page on opera news hub. I'm a 300L student of Mass communication as well. And my opera news hub story goes like this:
I remember those days, when I used to depend on my parents for every single thing I need, even a new toothbrush. Those are the days that I hope not to relieve again. I was so broke to the extent that I couldn't afford common notebook on my own to use for lectures, without first calling my parents to send me the money to buy it. That was in the year 2018, I just got admitted to study mass communication at the university. And my parents could only afford to give me 5,000 naira every week.
Sometimes, the money finishes in 2 days and I'll be broke for the rest of the week. Things were really tough for me, I used to wear tattered clothes even though I'm a lover of fashion and trending outfits. There was a time I almost thought about going into prostitution, just so I could afford to buy gorgeous outfit and rock them to lectures to impress people. But then I couldn't be brave enough. I was like that for almost 2 years. Until I got into 2nd semester of 200L, that was in February 2020.
I posted something on my WhatsApp status about looking for an online job opportunity and someone chatted me up. He was an engineering student from my school and he knew I was studying mass communication and wanted to be a journalist. So he told me about becoming an opera news writer and that it could help me improve in my writing skills. I quickly took up the challenge and registered for the platform.
I registered my first account called "DreamBigAfrca" on February 12 and immediately started writing articles. Then on the 15th of march, I received my first payment which was 56,000 naira. I was shocked because, it exceeded my expectations. I couldn't believe that a Nigerian platform could pay such huge amount just for writing news. I quickly used the money to update my wardrobe and upgrade my self.
The next month, i also earned about 78,000 naira and bought more clothes, bags, shoes, wigs, eyeglasses, etc. People started gossiping about me, saying that maybe I've started doing prostitution. But I just ignored them. All the people that mocked me before for wearing 1 outfit for 3 days, repeating clothes or wearing 500naira slippers, started coming close, asking me to show them the way.
My parents started noticing that I stopped asking them for money and I told them I've started writing for opera news. They were very happy for me. I started sending money to my parents monthly, anytime I received payment. The following months, I bought a laptop, a new television, fridge, generator, and a lot of other expensive furnitures in my room where I stayed in school (I didn't travel home during the Covid 19 lockdown because I wanted to focus all my time in writing for opera news) . In August that same 2020, I earned the sum of 135k(my highest earning in opera ever till date).
Then I gave 70k from it to my roommate to pay her off and leave the room for me, because I wanted to stay alone. Things were working really fine for me and even till now, I don't earn anything less than 70,000 from opera news every month. And I've been able to open 2 businesses of my own. God has been really faithful. From being a broke girl who depended fully on her parents for food and clothing, to being rich and fully dependent on myself. People respect me a lot now than before.
And that's all thanks to a great opportunity that opera news hub gave me. Thank you!!!
And by the way, I'm the girl in the pictures 😊. I'm pretty, I know and its all thanks to Opera news for bringing out my real beauty with money 😎.
