A Nigerian man identified as Adewale Adeniyi has inspired many people on LinkedIn with his grass to grace story.
Adeniyi said he worked as a roadside mechanic for six months without being paid during his undergraduate years at the higher institution where he studied engineering.
He said bailing oneself out of the less privileged circle is by showcasing "uncommon knowledge", adding that one becomes irresistible by doing so.
Adeniyi shared a picture in which he was flanked by two roadside mechanics to show his humble beginning.
He said: "I like sharing this picture because it reminds me of a time I worked with roadside mechanics as a University Engineering Student for 6 months and was never paid a kobo. I felt cheated but what I learned was priceless.
"Today I tell my mechanic what to fix and replace. I troubleshoot and do the mental work. I save some cash there."
He assured people that are struggling to make it that the future ahead of them is a good one. He said they should make sure that they are growing professionally and intellectually and monitor their growth.
