Dear Sandye,
You have been through so much, and accomplished so much. I so agree with you that all women should have access to paid work, and hopefully some experience before marrying. You know how important from what you have experienced. Girls and women have so many barriers, as our societies still depend on so much free labour from women. Keep going sister, the path you are making for yourself is strong, and I hope you find work and/or are able to create your own business soon. Congratulations on your Bachelor degree! So many doors are still unfairly closed to us, but your plan to own your own shop is such a good one. You are here now with a sisterhood that believes in you.

Hello, Sandye,

You are right that women should be financially independent before getting married.

You are so brave, dear sister, to strive hard for your children. You are a brilliant woman. You hold a degree and possess business skills. I believe in you.

May doors of opportunities coupled with God's favor be upon you. Please keep us updated.
