However I have no yet secured permanent employment and currently work on contracts with private academy. I like singing.

My Business

My main source of income is from the school that I teach. I sell stationery to the pupils and also do tuition which am charging a fee. This enables me to sustain my family needs and also continue investing in this business. Am planing to start my own school where by I will be managing everything and I will be able to do more and contribute significantly to the community. This will be a way of earning as well as giving back to the community.
