Born as a healthy child, Bless had high aspirations as every other kid. However, her chances of fulfilling her dreams seemed shattered when she a hunch started growing at her back. She told Accra-based Citi FM the hunch caused her spines to be strained.

She narrated that the development of the hunch affected her mobility. This caused her to stay home for years before going back to school.

She said she wants to work as a nurse in the near future and has decided to get an education despite the hurdles.
