This is Blessing in her shop in Edgeley. It’s a bit blurry because she moved whilst it was being taken.

When she came to the UK in 1998 she was a shy 12 year old who couldn’t speak English. Now it’s 2017 she can speak ‘proper’ and went to university and is married and has three children of her own.

After a year working in Manchester she setup her own shop. As the place she worked at went bust weeks later it’s probably just as well.
