Princess Tholu E Fholarin shared her grass to grace story on Facebook,
On March 5, 2018. I became a first time homebuyer in Canada. I Esther own a home in Canada, YH I AM SURE YOU SAID Woooooow………
I looked back from how it all started when my dad died in 1997, when we thought all hope was lost. i remembered having to hawk satchet water on the street of Lagos.
I came to Canada in 2015 as a student having to work part time and study. i would come to class and sleep and my colleagues will wake me up and laugh. But the days of suffering is over.
I am grateful to God for making my life a testimony.
I am not going to preach,i just want to use this medium to say Trust and Obey God. God has a plan for everyone,just take a second to listen and ask for he right direction, when you think the door is shut, please push harder because sometimes hard work and commitment will get you what you want.
I am proud of the woman i have become through Christ, i am happy that i feel accomplished before clocking 30 years.
I never gave up, and i am grateful to my friends i have made and met over the course of my life as you were all there for a reason and i appreciate you all. Thanks to my family and friends for all your prayers and support and i pray that May God Almighty grant you all your heart desires.
