My Everyday People…
I was Privileged to be served by the youngest Coconut Jelly Trader in town…
This 12 years old young man travels all the way from Lungi to the city to sell his Jelly.
He just did his NPSC and scored 280. He’ll be starting JSS 1 when school resumes.
One day, he’ll tell HiStory about how he started life selling Jelly miles away from home.
He was shocked the amount I paid for one Jelly but that’s nothing compared to what my heart wants for him. 🥰
God Bless Him.
