A young lady decided to confirm the saying that 'there is dignity in labor' with her actions.
The young lady identified as Adebayo Oluwatoyin, decided to earn an honest living for herself and her family, instead of going the route of prostitution that is becoming common among young ladies nowadays.
Oluwatoyin decided to set up a business, making noodles and fried egg and selling them whenever her school was on break, in a bid to raise enough money to pay her school fees, house rent and also pay her sister's fees.
Posing with her merchandise and her proud mother, she wrote this on her Instagram page:

"Felt like yesterday when all I always looked forward to the long session holidays... This is just so I could come home and make money for the next session. I had to find ways to make money because there was little my mum could do to meet all the expenses for me and my sister... Some people laughed at me, some encouraged me while some invested their change in my business.. I sold noodles and egg, and from the little I made I made sure I saved something every day.
At the end of the three months break, I had enough money to pay my sister and my school fees, my house rent and enough money to last me a whole semester. By the grace of God I have completed my degree with a Second Class Upper in Accounting from the UNIVERSITY OF ILORIN and right now my sister is waiting for her admission into the same university too. Looking back now, it's my success story because with that kind of hustle, nobody had to run helter-skelter to look for money to cater for those expenses. Just right there, mama's smile revealed her pride in me."
