Caught in her dreams were Mariam Useni’s fears of making it in her chosen career, finding a suitable husband and securing the blessing of her parents.
With a few bold steps, Mariam paddled her way into a new profession of drilling and borehole installation.
She’s been working as a driller for over 10 years and her results have been as visible as her mega engines.
At first, mockery became a new tune she had to dance to every day at the drilling site. She was mocked for doing the job of a man. Without care or attention to the rhythm of the mockers, Useni got focused on her job because she knew what she wanted.
Back in the university, Useni studied wood technology and wanted to start her own business with her knowledge. But resources could not meet her choice dream, so she delved into Drilling and borehole installation and without a doubt, Useni has been successful.
She trained on the job. The more jobs she got the more knowledge she gained.
In the long run, people have been seeking to have a conversation with her because of her profession and that includes suitors from all works of life.
Amidst appraisals from amazed clients, her father has been made a proud dad through Useni’s business. She’s been able to foot the bills of her younger ones and even give advice to her father when need be.
