“In the tertiary institution I studied hospitality, which helped me relate well with people in my marketing field. Financial difficulty was one of the main challenges I faced while in school. I sold the smocks to my mates and friends and lecturers. I still work in hospitality, in the sense of catering and providing food services to people. I get orders through friends and family.
“With the rise in the corona virus pandemic, I thought of helping in my own way to fight the pandemic by moving into the designing and sales of face masks. I contribute by choosing fabrics and designing, and a friend does the sewing. I remember my first time designing a face mask. After designing and wearing, it looked like a purse, but with constant practice, I now design nice face masks. I learned to sew through a friend. I spend most of my time with her in her shop. My favorite thing about the craft is the choice of colors.
“With this work, I know I will get the opportunity to help the world with the face mask campaign.”
