My employee was not so bad, which I always thank God for. The most challenging thing is that those days house helps were paid so little. I was paid sh300 per month despite doing alot of work in that house. I did not lose my vision of becoming an artist so I kept trying.
When I asked my employee to increase my salary, she added me sh20, that added upto sh320 per month.
I also worked as a waitress in Gatundu where I was earning a thousand per month.”
