My name is Mrs Chika Danladi, I am 50yrs old. I studied Estate Management at the University and graduated with upper-credit. I had really big dreams for myself, to be an estate Developer, I knew I would be good at it
Just before youth service, I met my husband. I did not hide my dreams and aspirations from him and he promised to be supportive. During youth service I found a job as an estate developer and resumed immediately youth service was over, I also got married almost immediately I started the new job
Months into our marriage, my husband asked me to stop working. I was shocked, this man promised to support me, this was a job I really loved. But in those days, what woman would pick a job over her marriage? I was not happy but I stopped working as per his instructions. He then opened a shop for me.
See how my dreams and aspirations just vanished because my husband said so? Every single day as I sit in this shop I wish I had stayed back at my job, I wonder if my husband would have left me because of that. I wish for too many things now, but I’m 50, there’s not much I can do. I hope women learn though, to stand their ground and also take care of their own dreams. It is as important as a man’s. I really wish I was strong enough to say “No” then, honestly I wish for a lot of things
