A Nigerian man in Sweden has melted hearts with his motivating story of how he struggled for six years to succeed.
According to him, he needed to get a menial job to obtain a social security number after his arrival in Sweden in 2016. He revealed how he worked as a newspaper delivery man and learnt the Swedish language before he could train as a nurse.
The man, identified as Fatai on X, said he was working from 12 am till 5 am daily, making it easy for him to study the language during the day.
Let me tell you a little story about me.
When i moved to Sweden 🇸🇪 2016, the first job i got was sorting of Newspapers. During that period, it wasn’t possible to get social security number directly and you needed a work contract to do so. I did that job and i secured the SSN.
