I am inspiref Joy. People get depressed and sleep for days until they can't see the light anymore but you said after two days, one must pick up himself or herself and get going. Finally there is light at the end of the tunnel. CONGRATULATIONS! Thank you Joy Ezeka

I’ve no appropriate words to describe my emotions and the pleasure I derived listening to you from a perspective of someone who know your journey, it’s the narrative and a path indicative of all successful people. Long live Zuri & Imani!

You are a strong women you have endured but you didn’t let it stop you rather it energized you and encouraged you to ride on. You are your mothers daughter. Long live Zuri and Imani. Don’t stop learning you are an inspiration to other women who are in abused relationship. You turned your sorrows into Joy and the darkness into light . May light keep shining upon you.
