How She started

As a prospective student waiting for admission for about 4yrs. She saw the need to learn a skill and fortunately for her , a lady posted pictures of Ankara craft on Facebook and loved it. She didn't hesitate to leave Lagos for Abeokuta to learn it. That alone was a motivation for her  to start up something with the new handmade crafts she was taught.
