Beautiful lady fixes Pop ceiling
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Okeke Stephanie, a strong Nigerian lady from Delta state, fixes Plaster of Paris (POP) overhead ceiling for a living. Stephanie said she threaded the career path despite facing criticisms at her early beginnings for doing a "man's job".
According to Stephanie, her father and aunty were not happy with her choice of job. They asked her to do something else while noting that fixing the POP ceiling is not a woman's job. Stephanie continued learning the job till she became a professional.
According to her, the people who criticised her are now proud of her. Although the job makes her look untidy, Stephanie maintained that it doesn't stop her from looking good when necessary. The young lady lamented bitterly that some people see her and assume she cannot do the job because she is a woman.
