In her words:

“My family likes education. I feel like I had to finish my degree first. It was important for me to finish school because I was also underage to move abroad so it was a bit challenging because when I saw people that I was older than playing in Europe – while I was still playing in Nigeria – it was tough.
Education is very important because you can fall back to it after you are done playing football. “I made up my mind to do it (second degree), and it was a little easy because I was studying from home due to the pandemic. In the end, I finished and I thank God. I want to do more, get more certificates.”
