She wrote: "I was 16. I was standing there watching the insult being hurled and a little assault over N70. I saw the sadness and embarrassment as they saw I was witnessing it. They told me to leave but I refused and stood there and watched. After it was over I told myself as I walked home in tears; in this life, except there's no God, nobody will ever insult them again over money. I don't care how long it will take, but I will fight poverty with everything in me. The following year at 17 after I finished secondary school, I started my hustle."
