Here’s her story as told by her in a Questions and answers sessions with Edward Asare.

“I didn’t train to be a carpenter. My Dad was one and because I was Daddy’s girl I learned it from him. I was always with him whilst he was working.

As I grew up, I started making penny boxes and fixing broken tables ,chairs and petty damages at home with him

It was never something I wanted to do from childhood

I had always wanted to study law.

My Dad’s dying words to me affected me postively.

He said I will never be successful in any career aside carpentry .

I laughed and asked why.

He said I was born to lead the feminine generation into creativity .

I didn’t take his words seriously in the beginning.

I tried modeling & acting after SHS but I was not earning as much as expected.

I had to take care of my family as the first child .

Tried working with some TV stations as a presenter but didn’t work out.

That was when I remembered my Dad’s words all over again and accepted the challenge.

Now here we are. Bought a car from carpentry“
