Taking on the challenge of fending for herself, Esther said she worked tirelessly to cater for her school needs.

In her words:

"I hustled like a goat in Lagos state selling shoes, coaching people in my writing school; Think to Ink Writers Academy (TIWA), and using my skills and talents; singing, writing, acting to survive.
"The responsibility was too much on my tender shoulder, thankfully Meadow came and eased some burdens."

Esther revealed that before she gained admission, she took JAMB and WAEC exams 4 times.

Why she kept retaking WAEC and JAMB exams

The Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Anambra graduate told Legit.ng's Victor Duru that her love for writing and desire to become a prolific writer motivated her to retaking the exams until eventual success.

"I started writing at 11 years old, discovered myself at that tender age. I just wanted to go to school and improve on my writing skills.

"I had told myself I must bag my Ph.d certificate, despite the storms that will come my way.
"So, I had no option than to continue rewriting WAEC AND JAMB."

The lady who currently runs Think to Ink Writers Academy (TIWA), an institute she created to help individuals become exceptional writers, revealed that she had actually picked her course English language and education because it was the best course an aspiring writer should go for.

When quizzed on how she dealt with challenges as a working student in school, Esther attributed her writing passion as a motivator again.

''There were days I would soak my pillows and would feel like giving up, but my passion for writing wouldn't let me give up,'' she said.
