I was 16. I was standing there watching the insult being hurled and little assault over #70. I saw the sadness and embarrassment as they saw I was witnessing it, they told me to leave but I refused and stood there and watched.
After it was over I told myself as I walked home in tears ; in this life, except there’s no God, nobody will ever insult them again over money. I don’t care how long it takes, but I will fight poverty with everything in me.
The following year at 17 after I finished secondary school and I started my hustle.
This smile is gratitude for how far I have come.
