Several years after dropping out from LEA Primary School, Riyom, Plateau state due to her father’s inability to continue sponsoring her, Mrs. Juliana Godwin, 42, has returned to school.
The woman who hails from Riyom Local Government Area of Plateau State recently enrolled as a Junior Secondary School 1 (JSS I) student of Junior Secondary School, Gosa, Abuja.
Narrating her story to Vanguard, she said, “I had to leave for Jos in 1983, since my father could no longer sponsor my education to secondary school because he had no money. While I was with my cousin, I enrolled in a tailoring shop to learn dress making. I completed it within a year and six months. In 2003, I was able to save some money from water hawking. I started pepper and tomato business with N1,000 from the savings. I also went into corn roasting business, but my husband stopped me from the business in 2007.”
