      Typo. Sorry … She has a back up plan now. If one nor work, another must. Not bad if you think of it. Besides, people can have more than 1 passion.

    So proud of you babes! U’ve always had it in u right from QC days…happy to know u!
    @Uchechi you dnt have to major in theatre art to be an actress…these days u can do anything and be anything…With her skills in Econs she can run her own business in the future if she wants to. The important thing is that she has her degree…
