Unemployment is like cancer that has affected youths over time.
Most youths globally have embraced entrepreneurship to better their lots, which is now inclusive in the curriculum of most tertiary institutions, while others are still basking in the euphoria of waiting for white collar jobs.
In this exclusive interview, our correspondent had a time with a female photographer of the lashawn photo studio, who is happy with what she is doing.

Precious: I am fine.
Taravoices: Where are you from?
Precious: From Karim lamido, wurkum by tribe.
Taravoices: What attracted you to the photo business.
Precious: Em’ sometimes back, I was just idling around doing nothing at home, so when the opportunity came I utilize it and thank God today “I am proud to be a photographer.”
Taravoices: Do you see it as a profession?
Precious: Yes, that is why I am in it.
Taravoices: How do you see yourself as a female photographer where those days people see it as a work for men.
