According to @ceracerni, she was moved when the elderly woman said she had brought her daughter to watch her paint on walls as a way of encouraging her.

In her words:

"I asked the young girl her name, age and why she wasn’t in school. I also flipped through her sketch book and the first thing on the page was a drawing of a cat painted purple and I immediately had nostalgia... I remembered drawing a cat in my primary school."

After telling the elderly woman about her art hub, she decided that Eniola would be her first scholarship student. She said:

"We will sponsor her training at the Ceracerni’s ARTHub till she becomes an expert."
