A letter from a Single Lady to her unborn child:

Dear Child, today felt different


When I was younger and not sure which way was the right way to go, I wished I had someone who I could share my thoughts, more like questions, with. Someone I could trust and be sure would always give me a sincere direction through life. But I found no one befitting this role.

EPISODE 5

We needed a minimum GPA of 3.5 at the end of our second year, to move from diploma to full admission.

Episode 3

I needed to be far away from my Mum. I needed her to miss me; to miss the little house chores I did; to miss the way I cooked my beans that she loved. I hoped that my distance would make her realize how much she loved me and how she wanted me back home.

Episode 2
