She said her decision to drop out negatively affected her life, and even drove her into depression, seeing that she could not share her burden with her mum who was ill with cancer.

Priscilla said she could not share her plight with her dad either because he was spending a lot on her mother’s chemotherapy.

Unfortunately, after a year of battling the disease, her mother passed on and left her with a little sister to care for. According to Prisicilla, the severity of the burden drove her deeper into depression and substance abuse.

The young lady revealed that in the midst of the storm she lost so many friends and family members, who should have been around to offer support.
