About Me

Hello! My names are Fridah Nzisa Lorithae, Nzisa is a name given to me by my grandma which means' worship'. As the first born of five siblings am the first born. We were brought up by a single mother and life wasn't easy and it led to school drop out at the age of seventeen years old. My mother's friend who owned a saloon took me and trained me on hair dressing models and beauty after which i had to work on her salon for one year to pay her back.
At the age of twenty one i got married to a husband from a different tribe from my own tribe. As a hair dresser by profession i started my own salon from a capital i received from my husband which i run partly as i further for my studies.

The culture of my husbands family girls get married at tender age by aged men against their will. I would like to support this girls for most of the time they can not embrace the situation and they decides to run away, the most hurting part is that they have no were to run to.
