In times when most Kampala slay queens are busy looking for sponsors or plying trades as escorts, one girl is choosing to be different. Meet Jovi Pearl, a Facebook slay queen who works at construction sites. She is our inspirational figure of the month.
Pearl studied at St. Kizito Technical College in Kitovu, Masaka. It is here that she gained knowledge as a construction engineer, and a budding architect. Born on August 3rd 1994, Pearl is truly a pearl among her peers. She is motivated by the desire to make her own money and not having to depend on any man for a living.
We landed at her on a construction site, standing on a platform laying up the bricks. She’s our feminist of the year. Forget the Twitter feminists whose feminism ends on keyboards.
