On the 26th of May 2013, I left the police station, where I was waiting for my relative to bail me out.

Because I was leaving the house where I worked as a maid, the family took me to the police station, so they would not be held responsible for any misfortune that might befall me. I left the house with nothing else but God, my clothes, books and my not yet concluded National Diploma (ND).

I survived days without food. I survived days with rice and palm oil only. I survived.

Four years down the line, I have completed my Higher National Diploma (HND); I have Emotional Intelligence and Fear Mastery coaching certificates. I have learnt so much and I’m still learning.

It has been an incredible journey. I love the woman I am becoming. I have enjoyed grace, love and favour.
