Ghanaian lady who is a barber
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that female barber, Grace Minnet is a former student of Benkum Senior High School who has made inroads in a career stereotypically seen as a male-dominated field.
Professionally known as Minnet the Barber, the adventurous lady has defeated odds and is excelling despite the impediments faced by women in her field. The 25-year-old's career trajectory began after she completed senior high school in 2010.
Minnet started in a salon, working as a hairdresser because, for her, it was the career most young ladies her age were pursuing at the time.
