“I was sleeping in uncompleted buildings despite having a family because I wanted to hustle and not depend on my family…I knew I had a family but I wanted to be self-dependant. Although I had a family, I was not depending on anyone because I did not want to be a burden on anybody. I was collecting waste from homes and fetching water for others in other for me to survive. I was an also into farming of maize and potatoes. It got to a time I was also teaching. People realised I was hardworking and so they started giving me tips,” he stated.
