"I Wanted To Be A Lawyer But I Lost Hope After My Accident"- Mary

The one-legged hawker who has been trending online since yesterday has done an interview with punch news. It is in this interview that she narrated how her life has been like since she lost one of her legs after an accident.

She introduced herself as Mary Daniel and stated that she lost her leg in 2006 after an accident which claimed all lives in the vehicle. She was with her parents as they were all travelling together but only her survived.

She said that she always wanted to become a lawyer when she grew up as this was one of her ambitions but after she did not just loose one of legs after the accident but also lost her parents, her dreams and ambitions were destroyed.

She believes that all hope has been lost for her in becoming a lawyer ever since her accident which took her leg.

To make ends meet because she couldn't be a burden to her grandmother who took her in, she started Hawking sachet water on the road. Her Hawking began in Asaba before she moved to Lagos.

Mary revealed that life as a Hawker with one leg has been very hard for her because her disability has limited her in lots of ways. She can't run to take her money from passengers when the vehicle is moving and she can't cross the road fast.

All these has contributed to her difficulty in the business.

Can Mary's hope, dreams and ambition of becoming a lawyer come true again? Yes if a good Samaritan can help her out because her business of selling sachet water can't currently sponsor that dream/ambition and that's the reality.
