- Her story got tongues wagging as it resonated with other users who, in turn, flooded the comments section with messages of goodwill
A woman lit the fire of inspiration on social media on Monday by sharing her awe-inspiring story of starting from humble beginnings to making a thriving success out of herself.
Agu Nwanyi detailed how, in 2015, she cut a living as a cleaner during a period of huge uncertainties.
Fast forward a few years and Nwanyi, who still works as a cleaner, although much 'bigger' than the one before, said she is the most content she could ever be and is enjoying the path of life that she finds herself on.
In a Twitter thread, she revealed:
"The picture on the right was [taken] in 2015. I was a cleaner. I just wanted to survive because it was just me. I wasn't sure of what I will be or become back then because I wasn't a graduate.
"I didn't have anyone to send me back to school so I turned [into] a cleaner because that was what I could do perfectly. Today, I'm still a cleaner but, this time, I'm a big cleaner.
"Well, I'm not a graduate yet but I'm a student now who will graduate soon. It is only death that can really stop us from making something good out of our lives; just keep the faith and hope alive, you will get there."
With this story, Nwanyi, whose handle is @Thickerbody_08, sparked an inevitable chain reaction as users flocked to the comments section in droves.

"God bless you more. So proud of you."
