Her interest in fixing generators and apprenticeship at the garage was developed from watching him do his thing at the garage. 

The youngster has since been very instrumental and helpful at the garage ever since her involvement two years back. In her words, “My father is my greatest motivation. He inspires me a lot whenever I see him fixing generators and motorcycles”.


It’d be recalled that in the early months of 2021, Veirat was a recipient of the Autolady’s Foundation scholarship scheme by Mrs. Joyce Daser Adams (a mechanical engineer and member of the Nigerian Institution of Mechanical Engineers, NIMechE) which is to run till her university days.
