My name is Matilda, I’m 37 years old and I come from a small town called Krobo Odumase in the Eastern Region of Ghana. In 2015, I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Communication Studies. I always wanted a job in the media and communication industry. That was my big dream after university.
But it didn’t come true: I wrote many applications but never got an answer. That went on for several years and was frustrating. Besides, as a mother of three children, I had to earn money. My husband had a job, but his income wasn’t enough.
