Proper cleaning because you will enter the heart of the matter.

2. You can be the little bride/groom at your friend’s wedding.

3. Two yards of fabric is enough for you to sew designer.

Others may be struggling to pay for 6 yards, but 2 yards and you are set for life.

4. Instead of going to the gym, your fitfam friends can lift you up as the weight.

Everybody will kuku think you’re a baby.

6. You don’t have fake humility.

You know why? You’re already down to earth.

10. You can use shortness to escape a relationship.

If someone you don’t like approaches you, just say, “I can’t date you. Can’t you see that I am still a child? Shebi you can see that I’m not tall.”

The first can never be the last. God has put you in front, who can push you backward? NOBODY!
