Health / Breaking Free From Sugar Addiction by Graiccy(f): 6:23pm
Sugar, which is an important source of body energy is an essential part of our diet. Glucose, which is a form of sugar is a product of sugar breakdown and the primary fuel for our body functions. Low sugar (glucose) in the blood can lead to hypoglycemia, with weakness, dizziness, hunger, headache etc as its symptims. As important as sugar is, It can also become a problem to us if taken in excess. Excessive sugar consumption has been implicated in obesity, diabetes, metabolic disorders, cardiovascular disease, cancer, fatty liver disease, depression, and cognitive impairment. Do you know that you can be addicted to sugar without even knowing?

Cutting down added sugar from our diet is one of the first steps to break free from sugar addiction and take charge of our health, to enable us age in super health free from underlining diseases.

Kindly watch my youtube video for more tips on cutting down sugar addiction.


Travel / Re: UK Fiancé Visa For Nigerians by Graiccy(f): 3:35pm On Apr 16, 2023
It is possible to move to the UK from Nigeria to be with a fiancé or fiancée by applying for a UK Fiance Visa. They must first and foremost be British nationals or have the legal right to reside in the country.

The fiancé visa is valid for six months and is issued with the expectation that you and your finance or fiancee will get married during that time. Find out more here

Please I need more info about this. I tried clicking on the mail but it’s not connecting.

wink cheesy[color=#006600][/color]Am interested please

I like to encourage women into tech and help them with their journey but because I do this for free, I’m not always available and don’t take too many people on. I just stand as support, someone to rub mind with, cheerlead and help plan career. There’s another lady that helps, I don’t believe she charges (she may), I got her permission to put her name here but I need to respect her privacy so I keep deleting it.

Thanks. The letter carries Npower Volunteer Corps, and even the payment is called a stipend so i thought it is.
Yes it will, By the way N-Power is not a volunteer experience, it is a proper job.
Travel / Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program - Connect Here Part 9 by Graiccy(f): 9:59am On Dec 27, 2019
Please does paid Volunteer work experience just like N-power counts? Can it be used to add up to the years of experience?

[color=#006600][/color]Its not like they are refusing..i cant reach tjem. Its an interior village with no network and very far from my present location.. I just felt since it was Nysc that posted me and my allawee was from NYSC, i could go to Nysc for the reference letter instead quote author=Natalie27 post=84782573]if the school is refusing to give you a reference letter, you can approach a staff of the school that most probably supervised you .. you can get a letter from him or her , notarise it , get their work ID as well and explain in your LOE .
Travel / Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program - Connect Here Part 9 by Graiccy(f): 11:05pm On Dec 09, 2019
cant we get the reference letter from NYSC instead, indicating that they posted you to the school? Just asking since the allawee payments details carries NYSC and not your PPA

You MUST get a reference letter from your ppa, its only the reference letter that can show your work description which is the most important component for claiming point in the chosen NOC. Try to get it
Travel / Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program - Connect Here Part 9 by Graiccy(f): 1:52pm On Nov 15, 2019
Please i need to understand this job experience part well cos am confuse... My work experience is as follows

1 year NYSC experience as a teacher
1 year experience as a paid volunteer in an NGO
6 months experience in an NGO as a field worker (Spent 3 weeks on training (we were paid weekly during the training) and 1 week for Pilot study (paid) before the 6 months work commenced)
5 months as a consultant in another NGO ( not really a straight job, called each tym there is work for us to do, our letter usually state how much we will be paid per day and how many days we are expected to work per month, though we still go to work everyday for the month (usually paid at the end of each month) i.e we were engaged June, worked for 15 days nd paid after d job, engaged again in August, for August and sept (15 days each month), and paid at d end of each month, extension letter was given to us till Nov still 15 days/ month and am also expecting another letter for Dec.

So my question now is,
how many years of experience can i claim?
Should i collect reference letter from NYSC instead of my PPA since it was only NYSC that paid me during that period?
Am i suppose to add the 3 weeks training and 1 week pilot (both paid) to my 6 months field work to make it a 7 months experience?
Travel / Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program - Connect Here Part 9 by Graiccy(f): 12:00pm On Nov 06, 2019
Can you please assist me with the IELTS materials? am gathering materials to start preparing for mine.

It’s ielts victory!!
Prior to sitting for ielts, I had read stories about how people got 6.5 in writing and that scared me to death. How I wish I entered the exam hall an ignorant fellow. First sitting, i got all the necessary help from my colleagues at work who had aced this exam earlier. I had prepped like my life depended on it since I so much disliked essay writing back in school. For the record I work 8-8 six days a week but I had to attack this monster with every fiber of my being. I always tried to hurriedly rush home and bury my head deep into my books till midnight. Honestly I don’t think there is any youtube listening and Cambridge practice test I haven’t taken while religiously reading sample essays on ieltsmentor page. I learnt ankasa! (twi) . @Chicyclass came through for me sending me some MOD writing book and I read the book page by page! I wouldn’t be exaggerating if I mention I remember the sentences like a child remembers his favorite rhyme. I sat for the exam for the first time in July
Results : LRSW 9 7.5 7.5 6.5
Hmmm 6.5 in writing, as expected cos, I didn’t even read over my essay and I was so much gripped with fear so ... I remarked but it unfortunately returned the same. Instances like these make me wish I knew the future. I’d have saved myself the time,energy and most importantly my funds. Being someone who never threw in the towel so quickly, I registered for the next sitting in 28th September. Time to face this monster again head- on!

I saw posts about MOD being “more generous “ with their 7 than BC but I’m Ghanaian and we only have BC so I wasn’t spoilt with choices like my fellow Nigerians. Just have to return to my “dearest” BC, who haven’t in this case been so generous to its beloved.Spoke to @yemblaze who added me to an ielts WhatsApp group and @stencil also sent me ielt materials . Thank you so much ladies. I’m forever grateful. This time, I had to strategize. I decided to learn extensively for the writing so I started with synonyms of common ielts topics from a youtube page which was suggested by someone here. I also contacted @blissnenye to help me with the writing and she made sure I wrote an essay everyday. “An essay a day keeps ielts failure away” lol. Like I mentioned earlier,this was almost like a punishment being meted out actually it was since I hated writing essays. I’d rather prefer reading those online but this lady, “my punisher” ensured I wrote and insisted on it. She was really bent on seeing me do something I hated. I realised It wasn’t just about the money for her but she really had my interest at heart..She tutored me for a week and told me I was good to go. Thank you my Madam @blissnenye.
So I Sat for the next sitting on 28th September and this time I wasn’t even looking forward to a better results COs since I had mixed feelings about the listening test. Results day finally came and I had LRS 9 9 7.5 and writing 6.5. Oo God! Not again! Hmmmm of course it would be writing, this devil keeps tearing its ugly head everywhere! What did I expect? I prepared so well so why 6.5 again.? What at all are they looking for?. I put in a request for remarking that same day results were released without taking my test report form. In mind, they should keep it until they gave me my 7. I prayed fervently for a positive outcome.
Then on the fateful day of 31/10/2019 , I received a mail. Behold the change I was waiting for had reflected!!! From 6.5 to 7. I was giddy with excitement. Sleep and I had conveniently become enemies that night . if this is how excited it feels to get the required ielts scores then I have not the least of ideas how you all react when you receive PPR mail.
Hope to jump, no dive into the pool and then wait for my ITA in the next draw.[/quote]

I have 2 years plus experience without the 5 months. Thought of adding it to make up d 3 years experience ill need for a higher score

How many years experience post-NYSC do you have?

I’m asking because if it suffices for your application, then you can leave this 5month gig out in the work experience section and then include it in personal history as a volunteer job type thing. Just so that you don’t complicate your life.

I might not be correct sha, but that’s my perspective. You can search the threads to see if anyone has been in a similar situation.

Thanks for your responses so far.. Please can i get the CES link/site where i can start with the evaluation??

You evaluate your highest degree which in this case is your master's degree. Your masters can be evaluated by either of these bodies ICES, WES, IQAS and CES. People have been using CES lately because of its faster time-line and WAEC isn't needed. Employment letter only shows proof of work, your reference letter shows proof of work, nature of work, duties, hours of work and the likes. Read more on what a reference letter contains. To the best of my knowledge, I don't think discharge letter can serve as a reference letter. [/quote]
Travel / Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program - Connect Here Part 8 by Graiccy(f): 8:46pm On Sep 26, 2019

Thanks.. Is it just my masters am to evaluate?? Pls kindly assist me with links or explanation on how to go about with the evaluation...plus can employment letter and NYSC discharge serve as reference letter??

Please take it one step at a time. I will suggest you start in this order... Evaluate your masters degree, while that is on, register and pass ielts with the required band scores. Before you complete these two, your job experience will be over 2 years which gives you a better chance to get an high CRS point. Do not bother about NOC at this stage!
