Precious wants to be a Teacher in the future.
Precious parents are family friends to her guardians. Precious has been living with her guardians before she clocked 2. Her parents and siblings currently live in a village in Enugu state and are peasant farmers. They were formerly living in Lagos, but her father had a serious motor accident which affected his legs. He was moved to the village for treatment. His family could not afford to meet up with payment of rent in Lagos, so they had to move finally to the village. Precious became very ill when she moved to the village, and requested to be returned to her guardian as she felt at home more with her than her parents.
Precious has been enrolled in the D2A Programme, but she still needs a sponsor.
