see excerpts below:
How will you describe life in the last two months?
My life has changed. I am not the same person I used to be. In the sense that things are better for me and my family. I am now working, we have a beautiful place to call home.
How are you enjoying your new home?
I am really enjoying it. It is such a beautiful place. I can’t imagine myself having such a lovely place as my home. I can’t be more grateful.
How will you describe the transition from village to bakery and now to a three bedroom flat?
There are a lot of differences in it. I was sleeping on the floor at the bakery. At home in Osun state, I shared a room with a lot of people. I now have a three bedroom flat. I have a room to myself, my children also have theirs. I have seen a lot of changes.
Will you say you have changed?
I am still the same Jumoke people know. The same Jumoke people knew in Osun state is the same as the Jumoke speaking with you right now, but the story of my life has changed. My lifestyle has changed. I am looking healthier, living healthier, I have more things to be thankful for.
I have a lot of clothes, not just clothes but fashionable ones. I eat better things. People have been helping us from right, left and centre.
