The lady share this story on her personal social media handle on the popular social media platform, Twitter.

Making the post, she wrote;

“When I was 5 my dad was promoted into a position that allowed him the benefit of putting 1 child in the company private school. He had been a security guard, to supervisor, and mom worked at PEP. I was their 1st child together and entering school so I got the opportunity.

Their friends said it was a waste, I would fall pregnant before I finished and family agreed. When I was in a private High school they told my parents I would marry and use their investment in another family and they really should have given their sons the opportunity not me.

I finished school, when I was in varsity I started sending 75% of my allowance home to make sure my parents were sorted. Mom retired due to illness and I covered for her and we all went to the market to make ends meet.

Dad got retrenched and it was on me, my brothers were having kids and couldn’t help my parents much. After varsity I paid for my baby brother to finish high school and my sister in nursing college with the help of her husband. When she finished my other sister wnet to college and I paid for her too.

I bought my parents a car to keep selling vegetables and support my nephews while I covered my siblings. I borrowed and lived on very little to make sure all 4 younger siblings were okay. God blessed and carried me when I didn’t get paid enough to do all this but each year everyone went to school.


This weekend my dad cried becuse I drove into his yard in my first car. I am 1 installment away from finishing my sister’s college fees. He weeped and in his prayers for me he just kept thanking God for validating the decision they made about me when everyone said it was a waste.

I have never been as happy as I was Saturday wishing him a Happy 70th Birthday with the car he has been wishing I would buy over the years while I insisted that I would have my turn when I was done with my siblings, my 1st loves. I know God and he has orchestrated my whole life.

I am so overwhelmed with the response to my thread. I wrote it then went to work so I haven’t even had a proper minute to read and respond. Thank you everyone, and as soon as I have met today’s work deadlines I will respond, I really appreciate the love pouring in.”
