Meet Blessing, a young woman in Abuja who is earning a living in a male dominated profession in Nigeria as a female mechanic. She is a secondary school graduate who decided to progress her life by becoming an apprentice mechanic for 4 years and is now managing a mechanic shop repairing cars.


Kudos to Blessing and others like her. She is an inspiration to other young women out there to use their talents rather than their bodies to earn a living. Watch the video in Pigeon English coutesy and video/picture credit by Ocheni Raymond Oche
