She said “Captain, January is a month I don’t like at all because things really don’t go as expected for me. I’ve never said this anywhere before but today I’ll say it to inspire somebody. My uncle returned from the US and met me as a footballer who had returned from playing at Kwadaso..”
“…. I went to play table tennis after that so when my uncle saw me, he promised to take me abroad. Truthfully I was in America in January but to put it short, I was deported” she revealed to Captain Smart without really saying why.
However, the heartbreak from her deportation did not discourage her although her family at the time tagged her as the bad luck child in the family.

She then went ahead to advise and encourage anyone out there who has plans of travelling abroad not to give up in case it doesn’t go as planned.
Here is how she put it “so I want to tell whoever is listening to me that if your dream is to travel and things are not going as expected, that is not the end of your life. God has plans for you because I didn’t know I would become who I am today if it wasn’t for the deportation.”
