Chinyere said she had to take that decision at an early stage as her parents weren’t financially stable to sponsor her education.
The young girl however stated that she would acquire a skill with money saved if it is not enough for her education.
Her family is homeless
At the moment, her family has more to worry about apart from not being able to send her to school.
Chinyere expressed worry that her family is homeless and currently resides in an abandoned petrol station as they were issued a quit notice in their former residence.
In spite of the challenging moments that come with the job, Chinyere said she is not ashamed of her hustle.
She admitted that friends would mock her, adding that people should understand that not all fingers are equal.

Chinyere revealed that before she began working as a tanker washer, she sought permission from her parents.
After getting the nod, she learned to do the job from her elder brother who also makes living washing tankers.
The school hopeful said she is so into washing tankers that sometimes, it happens in her dreams.
“You should continue to pray to Almighty God for his love, guidance, direction and protection towards you, your siblings, your work , your dreams and aspirations, my princess.”
“I pray for you may you not labour in vain. I was once like this, painting houses and stores but today God has rewritten my story. Stay strong dear and don’t give up, surely it will end in praise.”
“My dear, instead of selling your body for money, you choose to do this odd job . I tell you most solemnly you will be great in the near future. What awaits you in front is bigger than you can imagine.”

In an interview with BBC News Pidgin, Onyinyechi said she had a car in 2016 and recalled how mechanics would always try to take advantage of her little knowledge about car problems to the point of talking her into selling it off.
The undergraduate then took it upon herself to acquire the skill and began to make it a means of livelihood.
