Touching Story Of The Level 400 University Student Who Works As A Trotro Mate To Pay Her Fees

Today in this article, I want to share with you the touching story of the level 400 university student who works as a trotro mate to pay her fees. Ernestina Wilson is a young lady who is currently a level 400 university student. Ernestina Wilson works as a trotro mate to pay her fees. She shared her touching story on a television channel today.

" My name is Ernestina Wilson. I am a level 400 university student who works as a trotro mate to pay my fees. It all started when I came to Kumasi. I was born in the Central Region of Ghana but as time went on, I had to come to Kumasi. That was when I completed Junior High School. I then became a professional hairstylist and make-up artist. I made some money from the work so that was how I was able to go to senior high school. I was the one who took care of myself. My siblings also supported me financially," Ernestina said.

When Ernestina completed Senior High School, it was time for her to go to University. According to all that she said, she wanted to be a renowned journalist in Ghana. With the help of her siblings, she was able to continue with her education.

While Ernestina was at the university, things weren't going on well for her so she decided to find a job. She searched and searched and searched but she didn't get any job to do. That is when she decided to work as a trotro mate. Ernestina said she went to the drivers to tell them she wanted to work as a mate but they began laughing uncontrollably because she was female. The drivers told her that she can't do the work but she told them that she can. That is how she got the job. She was paid fifty Ghana cedis daily. Currently, Ernestina has a diploma in journalism and it is her dream to become a prominent journalist in the future.
