Ellison’s remarkable story, which was first reported by News Nation last year revealed how, undeterred by the difficulties, she took on two additional jobs – braiding hair and working in an Amazon warehouse – while putting her studies on hold to make ends meet and provide a better life for her children.
Initially, she told them they would spend the night in a spacious AirBnB reminiscent of their previous home. However, the real revelation came when she disclosed that the AirBnB was their new family home.
Reflecting on her arduous but rewarding path, Ellison highlighted the importance of not giving up on one’s dreams despite life’s unpredictable challenges.
“I believe in you writing your own destiny and doing what is necessary for you to make it to whatever you want to be,” she said.
