A lady known as Ijeoma Esther Egbunefo told BBC News what motivated her to learn and become an electrician. She said when she was a little girl, she was always playing with boys. She prefers being in the midst of men than amid her fellow ladies. Her closeness to men made her fall in love with what men do, so she decided to learn electricity.
Her career started after secondary school when her father told her that he can't afford to sponsor her education, she had to go learn handwork. Ijeoma decided to learn electricity, then started working after learning it. She used the money she made from being an electrician to buy a JAMB form, then she wrote JAMB and started university.
She studied electrical technology at the University of Portharcourt, Rivers state. After her graduation, she started her career as an electrician. She had done many electrical works for many clients and she's pretty good at what she does.
She said that the problems she's having in her job are that some clients discriminate against her because she's a lady. They don't believe that she can be able to carry out the job just because she's a lady. She's pretty happy doing what she loves doing which also pays her.
