Teaching does not pay well
When she graduated in 2015, she got a teaching job later in 2016 that paid her N12,000. According to her, she moved from school to school searching for higher pay. She finally gave up after getting one that paid her N40,000 but where she had no peace of mind. She told Puch Newspaper:

"It was the last one where I was paid N40,000. At that point, something came up. I had issues with my administrator. He said I was too bold because I asked him a question. Everybody kept saying I was too bold."
She said she was queried many times until she decided to leave. Her words:
"They didn’t even give me an opportunity to explain myself. I was always wrong at every point and every turn. I got home around 6pm and I cried so much. I simply concluded that I was going to resign. Immediately I got my February salary, I dropped my resignation letter and left."
When she stopped teaching, Amarachi said she turned to keke riding and now, it has become her means of livelihood.
