"The biggest hardship that I have faced was losing my parents while I was very young. I was forced to flee my home country of Uganda to migrate into Kenya in search of greener pastures since I had no one else to take care of me. Unfortunately, I landed a job as a house help and the torture that I endured while working for my employers was too much. I once contemplated suicide but I thank God that he made me meet my husband who took me in and together we made a home for ourselves."
