Huddah Monroe is a foster parent to a girl for whom she pays school fees and caters for her basic needs. Yes, she’s not just a socialite but an entrepreneur with a heart.
The Huddah Cosmetic founder and CEO said the girl has a mother and she only helps out with the finances.
“I adopted the baby because I feel like kids are very fragile and the kid’s parents couldn’t afford to pay the school fees. I used to ask this kid ‘do you want to go to school?’ and I saw her dream; she really wanted to go to school. I took her, she’s still with the mother but I pay for school and stuff like that. I love kids. I have my own foundation, Huddah Foundation.”
Adding, “I started Huddah Foundation so that half of the money goes to my foundation to help kids, especially those that are disabled.”
“When I was young … I’m from the ghetto, when we didn’t have anything to eat our parents would say they are going for a meeting and they’d come back with a sack of maize or beans or whatever to eat…
“People these days just want to meet to claim they are in meetings, and to poke their nose [into] your business & take selfies … My people! I am not the type to go for meetings just to claim I am in meeting … tukutane saa zile deal imeiva (when the deal is ready) … imebaki tuu kusign contract and payment.
“No more meetings just to meet! Let me stay home and focus on bettering myself!”
