An anatomy graduate identified as Grace Ishicheli Kenechi has responded to people criticising her beaded facemask on various social media platforms.
Grace sent a message to Legit.ng to share her own side of the story going around on the internet.
It was earlier reported that 20-year-old Grace made facemasks from beads, so as to help people who find it hard to breathe after using the medical facemasks.
She also stated that her beaded facemasks would prevent people from unconsciously touching their faces. Following this revelation, people took to social media to criticise Grace's creation.
Not many people were impressed by the creation as they questioned her about the real purpose of the facemask.
Responding to critics, Grace told Legit.ng that she is very passionate about beading. According to her, her focus is on necklace, earring, bracelet, and rings.

However, the story of her newest creation started when she decided to do something different. She also wanted to get busy during the lockdown.
Grace explained that she got inspired by what she saw on the internet and decided to put her creativity to work. So, she made a beaded facemask, which she describes as one of a kind.
"Beaded facemask is a fashion mask and not a medical facemask," the young girl who does not seem to feel offended by the criticism from social media noted.
According to her, her beaded facemask revealed that people understand why they should wear one. Noting that she is impressed by that, Grace urged people to stay safe and observe all precautionary measures including the use of a medical facemask.
