Nigerian lady, Jemimah Joseph Aniekebo was abandoned by her father when she was just a girl – her dad left her, her sisters and her mother because they were all female children and couldn’t possibly amount to much, but Jemimah proved the naysayers wrong and went on to become a safety engineer.

Today, contrary to her father’s belief, Jemimah is an entrepreneur and a safety engineer. Her story below:
