A young lady from Zambia, Eness Milambo, has shown that people could choose a totally different career path from what they studied in school.
21-year-old nursing student, Eness' journey to becoming a repairer started when her shoe once tore and she had to depend on someone to fix it for her.
The young lady, according to Jethro on Facebook, confided in her friends that she wanted to start a business repairing shoes. They encouraged the lady by giving her theirs to fix.
She added that many laughed at her and thought she was a big joke when she started the venture. The student revealed that whenever people tried to damper her emotions, she inspired herself.
Eness stated that financial hard times at home also pushed her to achieve success no matter what, disclosing she did not want to keep asking for money from her dad.
People have shown the repairer much love on social media. Below are some of their reactions:
Marjorie Manduli said:
"Keep it up young lady!!!"
Annah Maambo said:
"Keep going dear."
Elizabeth Palula said:
"That's the spirit."

Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that gone are the days when everybody wanted a white-collar job and were willing to settle for anything, no matter how unhappy and unfulfilling it may be.
Most importantly, gone are the days when women were scared to delve into male-dominated industries.
These days many people are becoming more determined to become productive with or without the help of the government. Such is the story of a Ghanaian lady identified by her Twitter username as Wemoye.
She turned her hobby of craft-making into a full-fledged business venture. From her posts on Twitter, she makes woven shoes, bags and accessories for both men and women.
