Sylvia Nyame, a physically challenged lady who is learning to become a professional a makeup artist has shared her tearjerking story with SVTV Africa on how she lost her left leg due to an accident.

At a young age of eleven, Sylvia and her mom went round Kwesi Mintim, a town in Takoradi selling "Oblayo.” A customer wanting to buy some led to the unfortunate incident.

She was slammed by a car, pushing her to a wall causing the wall to break down on her left leg. Her leg had to be amputated. She was primary six at the time.

Ten years later, Sylvia is a 21-year-old walking with crutches. Though she couldn't complete SHS, she enrolled in a remedial school and wrote NOVDEC this year. After completing JHS, Sylvia occupied herself with makeup tutorials, learning to make it a business.

Sylvia would appreciate her makeup setup or be employed.
