Man, I have felt for her. Unemployment is just depressing and I completely relate to her story. Post grad lige is just over-whelming and utterly exhausting. Maybe you could share how we can get to her , if an opportunity comes through. I wish her peace and mental stability man💟

Heard this and I remembered Ntv's Degrees of doubt documentary. Ironically enough, I'm a journalist degree student and I don't like it at all.. I wish I dod another degree. This conversation just gave me anxiety mahn. 😭

I can relate to Kagwe being teased! Being shy doesn't help at school 🤣. Somehow people don't know how artists struggle, they always imagine you still have that 100k you got paid 3 years ago!

Wow Adelle These stories get to me and especially this one. So much to think about people risking their lives for service to the community, mental health, living your purpose even at the most difficult times as in the case of Njeri's husband and having a support system. Man, so much to absorb Thank you for this❤❤
