What is the achievement you are proudest of?
The achievement am proudest of is the life of my eldest son. He has been a sickling since birth, whatever the condition is, it has not been diagnosed. I feel proud because I have tried the much I can to hustle money to get him treatment. I know God will also do His part and heal him.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
The biggest hardship I have faced for the past few months is more domestic. I have had infidelity issues with my husband and this caused a little bit of conflict. But things are better now anyway.
What is the happiest part of your day?
The happiest part of my day is in the morning when my kids wake up healthy. I feel happy then because I don't have to worry about any sickness.
