What kept her going as she combined security work with studies
In the emotional post, the lady said her determination and persistence paid off. She affirmed that truly, one's dreams are achievable as long as one has the courage to pursue them.
The young lady started hustling right from her secondary school days
Benjamin told Legit.ng in an interview that hawking wasn't a new thing to her.
According to her, the financial challenge rocking her family at that time meant she hawked dry fish for her mother after school hours.
"All through my secondary school I hawked Dry and fresh fish for my mum due to the condition of my family I know after secondary school I had no one to see me through school so I took it upon myself to get a job and start saving up for university."
The 24-year-old Economics graduate from a family of 9 did several jobs to see herself through school including working as a waitress and cleaner.
Benjamin faced ridicule at her hustle as a bank security worker - as the only lady in a security team that had 4 men.
"As a security I get insulted atimes some would say instead me to be a security woman I should go get married and secure my husband’s life.... some would ask who employed a little girl like me here that I can’t scare a rat not to talk of an arm robber."
Benjamin who nurses ambition of furthering her studies in Canada advised youths to never give up on their dreams and show trust in God.
"My advice to every youth out there is that they should never give up on their dreams
"They should trust GOD fervently because he is the only one that makes impossibility possible....
