My story

Joan was born to a single mother. Joan’s father required Joan’s mother to become Muslim before he would marry and provide for her and Joan. When Joan’s mother refused, she and Joan were neglected by the father and he refused to offer any support whatsoever for their needs. After Joan became of school-going age, Joan’s mother again asked for help to be able to provide food and education for her, but Joan’s father refused again unless they would both become Muslim. After refusing again, Joan’s mother became overwhelmed and abandoned Joan who then had to live with her grandmother who was very old. Joan joined IChooseYou and has studied hard in school. Joan has decided to pursue a career as a chef, and will earn a certificate in catering.
