We were all hopeful together for the future as we conglomerated in the same proximity but as man proposes God disposes.
 
As we met her in different places, events and circumstances, she left indelible mark‎s in our lives and times. Tears roll down our cheek with the thought of her unprecedented demise which has left us all in shock and disbelief. Late Blessing Achenyo Alfa as a promising young entrepreneur who believed in her craft empowered a lot of youths through seminars to impact on generations.
