Talk to Brief News, she shared how her passion was sparked when she had a great need for good furniture but unfortunately couldn’t afford it.
“My inspiration for furniture making and woodworking started because I didn’t have the money to buy furniture. Little by little I started to make furniture and my whole house is now nicely decorated with the work of my hands. I started a platform on YouTube called REMEDIAL DIY, where I teach people how to make their own furniture and crafts.
