The 16-year old Sekwanya Joel, an indigene of Gbagyi tribe of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), is not from a privileged home, but she is determined to succeed.

She is determined to take her aged parents, who are not wealthy enough to take care of her basic needs, including access to formal education, out of poverty that looms so large in the family. She is determined to be a success story.

Sekwanya, the last child of her parents’ five children, has refused to succumb to pressures from friends to make quick money through illegal means. Rather she has chosen to engage in some menial jobs around the city that will enable her assist her parents in taking care of the household.
