“I remember when I was eight years old, my father’s furniture business was going through a rough patch and I felt it was my duty as the eldest child in the family to help supplement income.” – Melissa
She came from a poor family and had to live from hand-to-mouth trying to find enough money to feed her mother and three siblings.
“I worked at a neighbour’s vegetable farm, harvesting greens to be sold at the market, and also wove cane baskets, which was extremely painful. I remember I used to go home with bruised and numb hands.” – Melissa
Despite her struggles, Melissa was determined to fight for a better life to give her family a future.
