A 19-year-old student of Mass Communication has taken to Facebook to narrate how she raises money for her education without compromising her dignity.
According to her, she hawks sachet water every weekend, sells Jollof rice in school, along with other small businesses.
She shared some photos of herself going about her hustling, and some other photos of herself looking well-dressed.
“I sell pure water to buy textbooks for myself in school and sometimes use it to pay bills
I go to the market every Friday evening, Saturday morning and Sunday afternoon after church, I enjoy doing it since I do get money for one or two textbooks in 2 days,” Paris Diamond wrote.
“I prefer doing this than sleeping with men for money. Yes, I slay but guess what is pure water business. I sell almost 7 or 8 bags a day depending on the lucky day. I’m a mass communication student.
“Sometimes my friends will be like ‘babe this pure water business no fit u o’ I smile and tell them I love it. I’m a Nigerian writer too, I have two novels and one drama I have published already but due to money issue I couldn’t make lots of copies.
“Sometimes when I come back I will [be too] tired to read but I try my best. I hustle pure water and sometimes sell [Jollof] rice in school, I make hair, slippers, and clothes with this my small but mighty business,” she added.
Meanwhile, we have yet to have any interactions with her to verify her claims.
