The ways of life are never predictable and just like the seasons come and go, so do our troubles
in life. Just like the famous book title “tough times never last but tough do,” here is the story of
a Ugandan girl that landed herself a bag of gold.

Hopefully we shall learn from learns such as these that social media surely is a free republic
were growth does not thrive on victimizing others but rather focusing on what we think matters
to us the most.
