You're leaving campus and you didn't start a hustle ukiwa student? You lost a golden opportunity. You could have been the laptop guy or the iPhone guy. You know that guy who everybody goes to for second hand laptops or iPhones.
You can still do it but being a dealer while a student was the perfect opportunity
